I am fed up of ill informed comments about epipens and anaphylaxis. As B+ has unfortunately experienced anaphylaxis can kill, and quickly.
It is ghastly to watch. As a doctor for 40 years, I have had to administer emergency adrenalin three times for anaphylaxis. Even being "trained" with adequate resources on hand it was still hairy, but all survived. Mercifully anaphylaxis does not happen that commonly.
Epipens are prescription only. If you have concerns talk to a medical practitioner.
PS. If I needed to have an epipen administered to me I would not care who did it, trained or not.
