    hi i just wanted to ask why does our pharmacy give us epi pens with short expiry dates.
    thank you.

      What is the usual time lapse between a post on this website and and answer from your people to the question? Fazilat’s March 11th 2013 question still appears to be outstanding.
      I look forward to the response to this one and the one that emailed to the info address above?

    How long are expiry dates on Epi pens?
