Question

Are there any precautions I should take with my Adrenaline Auto-injectors before I go abroad?

Make sure that you have enough Adrenaline Auto-injectors with you – it may be difficult and expensive to get replacement pens abroad. Organise this with your GP several weeks before. Airlines will often require a letter from your doctor to allow you to carry your Adrenaline Auto-injector with you onto the aircraft.

If you have a food allergy, you should also discuss meal options (if provided).
