Common symptoms of anaphylaxis include difficulty breathing, wheezing, and voice changes  If you suspect anaphylaxis, immediate use of an EpiPen or EpiPen Jr Auto-Injector is crucial, followed by emergency medical attention.

More Information

The EpiPen is a disposable, prefilled injection device designed to treat life-threatening allergic emergencies, such as anaphylaxis, in individuals who are at risk for or have a history of severe allergic reactions. It contains a single dose of epinephrine. The EpiPen is intended for immediate use by the individual or a caregiver and does not replace emergency medical care. After using the EpiPen, you should seek emergency medical help right away. The EpiPen is typically prescribed by healthcare providers, with the 0.3 mg version intended for patients who weigh 66 pounds (30 kilograms) or more, while the EpiPen Jr, with a 0.15 mg dose, is for patients weighing between 33 and 66 pounds (15 to 30 kilograms).

The EpiPen can cause serious side effects, so it’s crucial to use it properly. It should only be injected into the middle of the outer thigh—never into a vein, buttock, fingers, toes, hands, or feet. If you accidentally inject the EpiPen into the wrong area, seek emergency medical care immediately and inform the healthcare provider where the injection occurred.

Certain medical conditions or medications may increase the risk of adverse effects when using the EpiPen. Common side effects include a fast or irregular heartbeat, sweating, headache, weakness or shakiness, paleness, feelings of over-excitement, nervousness or anxiety, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and breathing problems. Although these side effects may subside with rest, you should inform your healthcare provider if any persist or cause significant discomfort.

Before using the EpiPen, discuss your medical history and current medications with your healthcare provider to mitigate potential complications. And remember, the EpiPen is an emergency treatment for severe allergic reactions; it does not replace emergency medical care. Always seek medical help after using it. For further details refer to the Patient Information Leaflet.

It’s important to inform your healthcare provider about all the medications you take, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Make sure to also mention any known allergies. If you take specific asthma medications, be sure to discuss that with your healthcare provider, as some medications may interact with the EpiPen, potentially causing side effects or affecting its efficacy. Always maintain a list of all your medications to share with your healthcare provider and pharmacist, especially when you’re prescribed new medicines. Regardless of other medical conditions or medications you take, always use your EpiPen as prescribed by your healthcare provider for the treatment of anaphylaxis. For further details refer to the Patient Information Leaflet.

To ensure the EpiPen works effectively in emergencies, it’s crucial to store it properly. Keep the EpiPen at a temperature between 68° and 77° Fahrenheit (20° to 25° Celsius), away from direct light. Avoid exposing it to extreme temperatures, which means you shouldn’t leave it in a car’s glove box or store it in the refrigerator or freezer. Periodically check the solution through the clear window of the device; it should be clear. If it appears discolored or contains particles, replace it immediately. To protect the EpiPen from damage, keep it in its carrier tube, but remember that the tube is not waterproof. The blue safety release is designed to prevent accidental activation, so keep it on until you’re ready to use the EpiPen. Finally, note the expiration date and replace the EpiPen before it expires to ensure it’s ready when needed.

The EpiPen is a single-use injection device that contains one dose of epinephrine to treat severe allergic reactions. When using the EpiPen, inject it into the muscle of your outer thigh, and it can be administered through clothing if necessary. Before use, familiarise yourself with the Instructions for Use found in the Patient Information Leaflet to ensure you understand the correct procedure. Follow your healthcare provider’s guidance precisely on how to use the EpiPen.

It’s important to exercise caution with the EpiPen to avoid accidental injury. Never place your thumb, fingers, or hand over the orange tip, as that’s where the needle exits. Pressing or pushing on the orange tip can lead to accidental injection into your fingers, hands, or feet, potentially causing a loss of blood flow to those areas. If this happens, seek immediate medical attention at the nearest emergency room and inform the healthcare provider where the accidental injection occurred.
