EpiPen

0 reviews
star star star star star

EpiPen is an adrenaline auto-injector (AAI) designed for the emergency treatment of the symptoms of a severe allergic reaction, known as anaphylaxis. Such a reaction can occur when your immune system overreacts to an innocuous substance such as food or medication. It can also happen as a result of insect stings, exercise or exposure to latex.

The symptoms of anaphylactic shock include breathing difficulties, swelling of the tongue, mouth or throat, wheezing, and collapse and unconsciousness. A serious medical emergency, anaphylaxis can develop rapidly and can pose a threat to life. EpiPen administers a dose of epinephrine, also known as adrenaline, to control symptoms and get the sufferer out of harm’s way.

Why choose EpiPen?

When faced with anaphylactic shock, every second matters so acting without hesitation is vital. If you have experienced an episode in the past, you may have been prescribed an auto-injector in case of future attacks. An immediate, first-line treatment, the device is prefilled with the adrenaline required to treat a shock. Conveniently, the medicine can be self-injected or injected by a carer and should take effect immediately. This means that you do not have to wait for an ambulance to arrive to treat the problem. However, it is advisable to call the emergency services whenever anaphylactic shock strikes.

What dose should I choose?

The ideal dose of adrenaline depends on your body weight. However, 0.5 mg is the maximum dose for an adult and 0.3 mg is the maximum dose for a child. To find out the right dose for you, you should consult your doctor.

How should I take EpiPen?

To administer epinephrine, the EpiPen should be jabbed into your outer thigh muscle and held in place for 10 seconds. Once the auto-injector is removed, the injected area should be massaged for at least 10 seconds. For more detailed instructions on how to take this medicine, follow the guidelines that come with your device.

How does EpiPen work?

Adrenaline constricts blood vessels to bring your blood pressure back to normal. It also relaxes the lungs and throat, making it easier to breathe.

What are the side effects of EpiPen?

Within five to 10 minutes of taking this medication, you may experience side effects such as palpitations, dizziness, anxiety, tremor and headache. However, these are usually mild and temporary. If you are concerned about side effects, consult your doctor for advice or get in touch with one of our healthcare professionals.
