9:17 am
them, we need to have three sets of them for each child. so school has to have one. and it has to be in date. you can't bring school an expired epi pen. and then we need one in the home for each of them. and then we need one in our to go bag for each of them. >> jacked up the price of a life saving product. >> reporter: but with a recent insurance price hike for mylan, the maker of the epi pen. allison's zero dollar copay >> 12 or $1300, my jaw dropped. >> reporter: so allison began to wonder about the pile of expired epi pens that she thankfully never had to use but required to purchase. >> this one expired august 2015. the solution is perfectly clear. can this still be good for a year past its expiration date? >> heather: what allison is referring to are these instructions on the back of the epi pens that state replace if solution is discolored.
9:18 am
allison's bag had turned color. not even this one, which expired in 2012. according to mylan's website, discoloration changes indicate the effectiveness of the drug may have decreased or been affected. fox 25 contacted dozens of labs and hospitals in the area to test allison's expired epi pens for their effectiveness, but all of them declined. >> that's a common misbelief. >> reporter: dr. john lee a clinical director of at boston children's hospital. a discolored epi pen, an expired injection may be better than nothing. >> and actually, most epi pens that are expired won't have any discoloration. so you really should just rely upon the expiration date. >> reporter: fox 25 found a recent study that tested 35 injectors two years past their expiration date and found that 90% or more effectiveness.

and go the hospital afterwards. >> reporter: allison says when it comes to the choice of saving the life of her kid, the choice is clear. >> if that's all you have, then it's better than nothing. >> reporter: manufacturer of the epi pen, mylan, says beyond the expiration date, it may not remain safe and okay for use. the company says if you're concerned about price, they will be making a generic epi pen $300 the price of the name brand. >> jason: the company says don't do it. but doctors say it's not that big of a deal. what do people do? >> heather: right. i think the bottom line is that doctors say using an expired epi pen isn't going to hurt anyone. the problem is you're dealing with life and death. nobody wants to take that chance. so the lower effectiveness of the expired drug may not be enough to handle a crisis situation. that's why they always say, if
9:20 am
911 if you have to pull an epi pen out. then people on the line, 911 can advise you whether you can use a second dose. also worth pointing out for thor to, we tried, i'd say, a dozen labs to try to get them to test these epi pens for us, universities, private labs i think right now it's too hot of an issue, hot button of an issue for those labs to want to get involved. but it would be interesting to see the efficacy of these in a local lab. >> jason: interesting story. jason. >> jason brewer and the fox 25 storm tracker weather team. >> jason brewer: good saturday morning if you're just waking up with us. sunny but chilly. northwest winds at 16. that gives you a wind chill of 29 degrees. all areas above freezing now. upper 30s around arlington, peabody, norwood at 40 degrees. pepperell, fitchburg, mid and upper 30s here. back to worcester at 34. so chilly but 40 degrees on the
9:21 am
gusty winds 20 miles an hour. down from 40. like we had yesterday. so not near as blustery of a day. but, again, enough to where you want the extra layers. maybe the heavier coat as opposed to the lighter jacket. wind chills still running in the 20s in a lot of spots. let's go to the hour by hour forecast. we plan our saturday. sunshine all day long today. we'll see numbers in the middle 40s at 1:00 and around 3:00. we're hitting the high temperature. and then we slide off quickly after sunsetac in the upper 40s. most areas a couple of isolated 50s there around norwood and providence. middle 40s for worcester today. but look at tomorrow's temperature turn around. we'll add on about 10 degrees to the afternoon high. so definitely my pick for sunday to be outside enjoying a little bit more comfortable weather. we'll still have a breeze. but even that will taper off after sunset at gillette
9:22 am
nice football weather. 54. and we are clear throughout the evening. the other thing on sunday. the super moon, i think the best viewing is sunday night. it's making its closest or bittal path to earth since 1948. so it will have a stronger pull on the tides. that's the main concern with this. it will be fun to watch. but by tuesday at noontime the high tide cycle will be one to watch. especially with a coastal storm starting to gather and make its rain in here on tuesday. we'll be checking back in on that as we get closer. your with the weekend always in view it's dry and bright. just a little on the cool side for today. >> jason: four days later and still a nation divided after the out come of tuesday's election. but a local man says he never had any doubt about donald trump and that he'll make a great leader. the conversation he had with trump decades ago, that may have planted the seeds for his political future.
