Abc, Children, and Doctor: WEAR ABC 3 News, Pensacola shared a V link. 1hr.

(Similar to when I went to CVS to pickup a 90$ prescription and they had their own generic version for 7.99). This is important! Tell your Friends. I can’t believe some insurances quit covering them 😐 From Slate: The generic Adrenaclick will cost $109.99 for two doses, compared with $649.99 for the same amount of drug in an EpiPen. That’s good news, both for financial and safety reasons: STAT reported last year that some parents and institutions had begun filling up syringes with epinephrine as a cost-cutting measure, a DIY solution that could pose great risk to the children who may have eventually needed injections. A more affordable alternative will help ensure safer epinephrine injections. That’s assuming, though, that the people who need these devices know exactly what to ask for when they’re sitting in their doctors’ offices. Otherwise, they’ll still be stuck with the overpriced product. Here’s why: The mechanism by which Adrenaclick injects the drug is slightly different from EpiPen’s mechanism, so the Food and Drug Administration has ruled that the two are not therapeutically equivalent. That distinction is important because it means a prescription for an EpiPen cannot be filled with Adrenaclick. If you want the cheaper option, you have to have an Adrenaclick prescription. You must ask your doctor for an Adrenaclick prescription!  I also found a coupon from Impax on 0.15mg and 0.3mg epinephrine injection, USP auto-injectors, which appear to be the generic version of Adrenaclick; these coupons cover up to $100 per pack for 3 packs of these injectors (6 total injectors). Some customers may be automatically eligible for $100 off the retail price thus only paying $10 for a pack, but this may be good backup for those who for whatever reason do not meet those requirements. Pass this information on, potentially save a life.

Memes, Wrestling, and Army: DOD INVESTIGATING WHETHER MARINES WERE ASLO INVOLVED IN GREEN BERET MURDER New forensic evidence suggests more people may have been present the night of Logan Melgar's death in Mali WASHINGTON — The military is investigating whether two Marine Raiders played a role in the choking death of a Green Beret in Mali last year and the possible cover up of how it occurred, according to five U.S. defense officials. Two Navy SEALs from DEVGRU are already under investigation for their involvement in the strangling death of Staff Sgt. Logan Melgar during the predawn hours of June 4, 2017. Melgar, 34, died in embassy housing he shared with other service members in Bamako, capital of the West African nation. A September 2017 Army Criminal Investigative Division report about the incident quotes Navy SEAL Tony DeDolph saying he and Army Staff Sgt. Logan Melgar were wrestling at 4 a.m. when a fellow SEAL Adamcranston Matthew came in and joined in the horseplay. According to the SEALS, the men fell down together and when they stood up Melgar wasn’t breathing. The SEALs say they attempted CPR and tried to open an airway, but Melgar died of asphyxiation. The same report, however, says a witness told investigators that DeDolph and Matthews were among a group of people angry at Melgar, and had made comments about getting back at him. According to that witness, “DeDolph admitted … that he ‘choked [Melgar] out.’ ” and had used duct tape on him. A military medical examiner ruled that Melgar’s death was “homicide by asphyxiation.” Now forensic evidence uncovered during a Navy investigation indicates two Marines may have been present during the night, say five U.S. defense officials. Adam Stump, spokesperson for the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, which has been probing the incident, declined to comment on the two Marines. “We don’t talk about open investigations,” Stump said. A spokesperson for U.S. Marine Special Operations Command also declined to comment on the two Marines. “It is our policy not to comment on ongoing investigations,” Maj. Nick Mannweiler said.
