Glucagon kits, which contain everything needed to prepare and give the injections, are made by Eli Lilly and Company (sold under the name "Glucagon Emergency Kit") and by Novo Nordisk, Inc. (sold under the name "GlucaGen HypoKit"). In addition, Bedford Laboratories makes a version of GlucaGen that comes with just the glucagon powder and the liquid used to dissolve the powder (not the whole kit) and is suitable only for use in hospitals or other similar settings, typically for use during diagnostic tests.
Perhaps seeking advice from a pharmacy would immensely help, they could perhaps suggest an alternative in the form of pills.
Take care, best wishes!
No, it comes in only injectable form. It is to be used only in emergent situations. It needs to get into the body and acting rapidly, because by the time it is used, the blood sugar is very low and nothing else has brought it up. Often the person is very groggy when it is used and couldn't swallow.
