I've recently found out I'm allergic to insect stings and was given an epipen. It says to seek medical attention after use. My question is, if I were alone, should I drive myself, wait for someone to pick me up, or call 911?
Ideally you should have someone else drive you or call an ambulance. You shouldn't drive yourself til you've been medically stabilized by the Dr. Your epipen is a stop-gap measure designed to give you the needed time to get to the Dr or hospital.I hope this helps!
