EpiPen Adrenaline Auto-Injector Solution for injection is only to be used for the immediate EMERGENCY TREATMENT of a SEVERE ALLERGIC REACTION (also known as ANAPHYLAXIS). 

EpiPen is used to treat people who have a severe allergic reaction, otherwise known as anaphylaxis, caused by, for example, hypersensitivity to:

  • food
  • medicines
  • stinging insects
  • insect bites
  • latex or
  • other allergens, possibly unidentified.

Avoidance of known allergens is most important in preventing severe allergic reactions.

It is important to act quickly to treat a severe allergic reaction.

The adrenaline in EpiPen treats allergic emergencies by:

  • shrinking abnormally wide blood vessels and
  • making the heart beat strongly.

This helps improve the very low blood pressure and poor circulation that occur in a severe allergic reaction.

Adrenaline also:

  • relaxes the lungs. This eases breathing and lessens wheezing.
  • helps stop

    • swelling, for example, of the face and lips
    • skin rash and/or
    • itching.

The EpiPen Auto-Injector is intended for use in people who have been assessed and advised by their doctor or pharmacist as needing an EpiPen Auto-Injector to treat their severe allergic reaction and who:

  • weigh more than 30 kg, and
  • are having a severe allergic reaction.

Note: Selection of the appropriate dosage is determined according to patient body weight.

For a person who weighs from 15kg up to 30kg, the doctor or pharmacist may assess their severe allergic reaction as needing the larger dosage of adrenaline as provided by an EpiPen Auto-Injector. (The EpiPen Jr. Auto-Injector delivers a smaller amount of adrenaline).

EpiPen Features:

  • provides convenient first-aid
  • may be self-administered or administered by a carer
  • has a spring-activated, hidden needle
  • automatically injects one pre-measured dose of adrenaline
  • is for single use only.

Active ingredient:

This EpiPen dose provides 300 µg (0.3mL dose) of adrenaline (epinephrine).

The EpiPen Auto-Injector holds 2 mL of adrenaline (epinephrine) 1:1,000 solution.

See Side effects for information regarding allergy to sodium metabisulfite.
