Carry 2 EpiPen®
Wherever You Go
People who have been prescribed an adrenaline auto-injector because of the risk of anaphylaxis should always carry two EpiPen at all times.
The active ingredient and instructions for use are the same for the EpiPen® and EpiPen® Junior so the information in this website is applicable whether you have been prescribed EpiPen® or EpiPen® Junior and the term EpiPen® used throughout applies to both.
This website provides information to patients who have been prescribed EpiPen® for the emergency treatment of anaphylaxis and to their families and carers.
The information provided here will help you to understand what anaphylaxis is, what causes anaphylaxis, and how to recognise the symptoms. It gives you guidance on how to manage anaphylaxis on a day to day basis and how to avoid a severe anaphylactic reaction.
This website explains all about your EpiPen®, when to use it and how to use it. A ‘EpiPen® Demonstration Video’ can be viewed or downloaded to help you, friends, family and carers prepare how to use EpiPen® in the event of a medical emergency.
