A person weighing more than 25 kg may use an EpiPen. EpiPen Jr 0.15 mg is for children weighing between 7.5 kg to 25 kg.
Epipen is for children weighing above 25 kg, while Epipen Jr is for younger children weighing less than 25 kg.
To prevent the life-threatening condition, always inject an EpiPen as soon as the first sign of any known or suspected allergic reactions appears.
A person experiencing an allergic reaction can inject an Epipen himself, or someone caring for him may also inject it.
Try to hold EpiPen in place for 3 seconds to receive the entire dose.
Place the orange tip perpendicular to the outer thigh and push the auto-injector until it sounds like a click. The click means EpiPen is activated.
If you use an EpiPen in case you don't need it, the symptoms are not too severe; a short-term numbness occurs at the place of the injection. However, it may disrupt blood flow and cause tissue death in the worst cases.
Use EpiPen in pregnancy if utterly necessary in severe allergic reactions and with a doctor's consultation.
Yes, you may inject it through your clothes.
Discard the Epipen as opening the blue safety cap means it is activated.If the EpiPen is not yet active despite removing the safety cap, place the needle gently back into its carrier tube and fasten it securely with the blue safety cap.
Store it at room temperature in a safe place. Do not expose it to extreme heat or cold.
The liquid in an EpiPen must be clear and colourless. Immediately replace your EpiPen if there are any signs of:
- Discoloured liquid
- Leakage or damage
- Solid precipitate
In a severe allergic reaction, you can use an EpiPen despite having a sulphite allergy.
Always seek medical assistance after injecting an EpiPen and give the used EpiPen to the medical assistant. It is vital to dispose of expired EpiPens in an appropriate bin.
The air bubble is nitrogen gas, and it does not interfere with the use of the EpiPen. It is quite normal for bubbles to appear.
Always carry your EpiPen with you while travelling for any emergency.
Airlines often require a letter of notice beforehand if you are taking your EpiPen along you.
