Do you have the DIN number for adult dose AuviQ? I thought I posted it on the forum, but I cannot find it.
Standard = 02480379
Junior = 02480360

Thank you.

My pharmacist was being a jerk. Next time the other guy is in I’ll talk to him.

In better news, the EpiPen supply is now back to normal in Canada.  It still remains spotty in some parts of America. 

Fingers crossed they can keep Auvi-Q here.  Plans are in the works to get it permanently in Canada by the end of the year, but I'm not getting my hopes up just yet.

Unlikely they can keep it here temporarily because they are not bilingual.

Allerject used to be, so maybe part of making them permanent would include a French audio version.

Glad to be of service, ma’am.

Yes, to sell it here there must be a French version. I think the written instructions have to be in both languages, but maybe just match the oral.
