Getting an epi pen from your doctor is definitely a good idea.

Actually, I was doing some research on it the other day and it sounds like (in the U.S. at least, though perhaps not in the UK) epi pens are available for OTC purchase. I don't have any allergies severe enough to warrant buying one so I can't say with certainty, but that's the impression I get.

Edit: I just now found some for sale online, so I guess you can buy them without a prescription here in the U.S. Man, those things are expensive!

Thanks for all of the replies. A warning, though, about thawing the frozen cube first in a cup of tropical aquarium water - this gave me an even worse reaction, as the "fumes" somehow got to me during the thawing process. I'm just going to use gloves until this package is gone and then never buy them again. It was a really horrible experience.

Thanks all!
