Wow thanks for posting GN! This brings me right back to DSí reaction where he needed 2. It really bugged me at the time.

I thought the rates were higher, but I may be confusing that with the biphasic reaction statistics.  A good reminder to always carry two. 

My worst reaction required three doses: my EpiPen, a dose in the ambulance, and another dose at the hospital.  :'(

DS thinks I'm nuts, but when he flies I tell him to carry at least 4, preferably 6.  Have to allow for misfiring as well.
