Help: EpiPen, Auvi-q, or Adrenaclick?

 I’m trying to figure out which epinephrine auto-injector to buy. Has anyone had any problems with any of these devices aside from the cost? 

These are the only three that I know so far, if you have any other suggestions I’m open to them.

    Hi, Ashleigh! AAFA  has a great resource on its Kids With Food Allergies division about auto-injectors:

    As for the expense, AAFA has information on that as well:

    Is the auto-injector for you or for your kiddo?

    I was asking if anyone has had any problems with his/her auto-injector. For example, cutting leg, needle not expelling, etc.

    Could you ask your allergist or your allergist's nurse to train you on using an auto-injectors? 

    Also, the FDA updated some instructions on auto-injectors. Here's KFA's blog post about that:
