Allergies and Anaphylaxis

(continued)

How Can I Be Prepared for Anaphylaxis?

If you are allergic to bee stings or any other substances that cause anaphylaxis, you should always be prepared. Ask your doctor to prescribe an epinephrine injection kit and carry it with you at all times.

Also, it's important that you inform your health care provider of any drug allergies before undergoing any type of medical treatment, including dental care.

It is also a good idea to wear a MedicAlert bracelet or pendant, or carry a card that identifies your allergy. In cases of emergency, it could save your life.
