And Epi pen, is Ephiphrine, used to treat allergies and would not do anything for diabetes.

You are able to buy both tablets that dissolve in the mouth, as well as liquid drops at virtually any drugstore, that work fast to relieve a low sugar attack. Orange Juice, or any liquid with a regular sugar content will help to bring him out of it, just follow it with something like yogurt or a sandwich that contains long sugar molecules to maintain the sugar balance at a higher level.

Diabetes NP Says:

Glucagon is an injectable treatment for low blood sugar, primarily for those with type 1 diabetes or who have frequent low blood sugars that require help to treat. It works much like an Epipen and comes in a kit. It requires a prescription from your doctor or NP.
