UPDATE: Availability of EpiPen® (Senior) 0.3mg Adrenaline Auto-Injector

Overview

Due to manufacturing delays from our contract manufacturer, Meridian Medical Technologies, a Pfizer company, there are intermittent supply constraints of EpiPen® 0.3mg Adrenaline Auto-Injector in the UK.

Latest Supply Status

Distribution of EpiPen 0.3mg Adrenaline Auto-Injector from Pfizer to our distribution partner and onwards to pharmacies in the UK will continue as shipments arrive. The next shipment is expected to be delivered to the warehouse of our UK distribution partner toward the end of April 2018. The product will then be immediately shipped to pharmacies. Until this next shipment arrives, EpiPen 0.3mg Adrenaline Auto-Injectors may not be available.

With patient access as our priority, we will continue to proactively and diligently update pharmacies, healthcare professionals and patient advocacy groups across the country regarding any changes in stock availability. 

NOTE: At this time, there are no supply constraints of EpiPen Jr®  0.15mg Adrenaline Auto-Injectors.

Ongoing Supply Management

Mylan is working closely with Pfizer to manage supply carefully to avoid long-term supply shortages. Pfizer anticipates that production rates will increase over the coming months; however, at this time, cannot commit to a specific time for when the supply constraint will be fully resolved. We are confident in the safety and efficacy of the EpiPen® products being produced at Pfizer’s site and are working closely with them to alleviate the situation and achieve a steady state of supply as expeditiously as possible.

Information for Patients

Mylan is unable to make any specific treatment recommendation to individual patients. Patients should speak to their healthcare provider for appropriate actions to be taken.

Information for Prescribers

Please note, when validating the expiry date of an adrenaline auto-injector, the product expires on the last day of the month indicated. For example, if it expires in April, it remains valid (not expired) until April 30.
