Remove the blue safety cap by pulling straight up, hold the EpiPen® 10cm away from your outer thigh at a right angle, jab the EpiPen® into the outer thigh and hold for 3 seconds.
After use, the orange needle cover will extend to cover the needle and the viewing window will go dark.
Your EpiPen® is designed as emergency treatment only, you should always seek medical help immediately after using your EpiPen®. Dial 999, ask for ambulance and state ‘anaphylaxis’ (even if symptoms appear to be improving)

It is best to practise regularly with an EpiPen® Trainer. You can order one here* if you do not have one, or ask your doctor.
Remember, each EpiPen® can only be used once so it is important to always carry two. If symptoms do not improve after 5 minutes, use a second EpiPen®.
