The Emergency Action Plan put in place for my boys by University of Michigan actually changed a bit 1 year ago to reflect this verbiage, “Any SEVERE SYMPTOMS after suspected or known injection”…”INJECT EPINEPHRINE IMMEDIATELY.” This was something new from past years in which we were always trained to administer a dosage of Benadryl 1st and if symptoms worsen THEN inject the Epi-Pen. This is very important to note to school staff and child care givers as well as all family members. I highlight it with a yellow marker on every Emergency Action Plan.. Food for Thought.
