This is not the first time we have heard about it, but is probably a sign that it is closer to becoming a reality!

According to Meaghan St. Pierre of Click-On Detroit, "Researchers at Nova Southeastern University have been working for five years on a pill that might be an alternative to the EpiPen. It's a tablet that disintegrates in 10 to 15 seconds sending lifesaving epinephrine into the bloodstream."

To read the entire article which is entitled "Researchers working on alternative to EpiPen", visit the Click-On Detroit website.

There is no word on possible pricing yet.
