Question

Are there any precautions I should take with my EpiPen® before I go abroad?

Make sure that you have enough EpiPen® 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 EpiPen® with you onto the aircraft. Click on the link to print off a Travel Certificate for your doctor to fill in – make sure you get it done in good time before you travel. If you have a food allergy, you should also discuss meal options (if provided).
