What's the latest on Generic Epinephrine auto-injectors?

I think this letter summarizes the situation well.  Now for some practical comments.  This generic is identical to the Adrenaclick.  Note the instructions for use are not the same as with Epi-pen.  What are relative prices?  I don't know and to date I haven't been asked even once.  If there were a significant savings at least to the insurance companies, then I'd expect them to be pushing as hard as they do with all other medications, which is to say, very hard.  Pharmacies may feel the chance for a profit also.  Time will tell.  We are all subject to the laws of economics.
