The EpiPen® Auto-Injector is a disposable, pre-filled automatic injection device that administers epinephrine in the event of a severe allergic reaction. A severe allergic reaction, also known as anaphylaxis, occurs in some people when they are exposed to a usually harmless substance, called an allergy trigger. The body overreacts to allergy triggers and releases chemicals to protect itself. In severe cases, this reaction produces life-threatening symptoms.

Common triggers include:
  • Food
  • Insect stings and bites
  • Medication
  • Latex
  • Exercise
  • Unknown causes
Directions for use:
  1. Remove the EpiPen® Auto-Injector from the carrier tube and follow these 2 simple steps:
    • “Blue to the sky”

    • “Orange to the thigh”
Swing and push orange tip firmly into mid-outer thigh until you hear a 'click'

    • After use
Built-in needle protection
