EpiPen vs. Epinephrine Auto-Injector by Impax
Name-brand price: $700 per two-pack
Generic price: $110 per two-pack at CVS Pharmacy
The better deal: Impax
If your insurance doesn’t cover the EpiPen, a life-saving adrenaline injector for severe allergic reactions, you could pay as much as $700 for a two-pack. The Epinephrine Injection Auto-Injector by Impax is a generic version of Adrenaclick, a cheaper alternative to the high-priced epinephrine pen. In more than a dozen states, you can request the generic medication to save money without having to contact your doctor for an amended prescription.
As with all generic medicine, Impax delivers the same ingredient and dosage as the EpiPen and Adrenaclick. CVS offers the generic auto-injector at its 9,600 locations around the U.S. Impax also offers a $50 off coupon to save you even more money.
