Epinephrine Pf

Drug Info for epinephrine pf

Epinephrine injection is used along with emergency medical treatment to treat life-threatening allergic reactions caused by insect bites or stings, foods, medications, latex, and other causes. Epinephrine injection is also used to treat life-threatening low blood pressure associated with septic shock (a serious condition caused by a body-wide infection that can lead to dangerously low blood pressure and organ failure) in hospitalized adults. Epinephrine is in a class of medications called alpha- and beta-adrenergic agonists (sympathomimetic agents). It works by relaxing the muscles in the airways and tightening the blood vessels.

Keep the autoinjector and prefilled syringe in its carrier tube or case to protect it from damage. This tube or case is not waterproof. If you accidentally drop it, check for damage or leaks.

If you are using the epinephrine injection in a child, make sure to hold his leg firmly in place and limit movement before and during an injection.

Throw away expired, unwanted, or unused EpiPen® or EpiPen Jr® in an FDA-cleared sharps container. Do not throw it away in the trash bin.

Check your injection kits regularly to make sure the liquid has not changed color. It should be clear and colorless. Do not use the autoinjector, prefilled syringe, or vial if the liquid is discolored or cloudy, or if there are particles in it. You should not use the autoinjector or vial if the expiration date has passed.

Store the injection kit at room temperature, away from heat, moisture, and direct light. Do not store the medicine in the refrigerator or freezer, or inside a car.

For treatment of low blood pressure with septic shock: A nurse or other trained health professional will give you this medicine in a medical facility. It is given through a needle placed into one of your veins.

Your doctor should teach you how and when to inject this medicine. Each injection kit contains a single-use dose of medicine prescribed for you.

Give yourself a shot right away if you start to have a severe allergic reaction.

Inject this medicine under the skin or into the muscle on the outside of your thigh only. Never inject this medicine into a vein, into the muscles of your buttocks, or into your fingers, toes, hands, or feet.

Read and follow the patient instructions that come with this medicine. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.

This medicine might come with an autoinjector trainer so you can practice giving the medicine before you have an actual allergic reaction. The autoinjector trainer is gray (for EpiPen® or EpiPen Jr®) or beige (for Adrenaclick®) and does not contain any medicine or needle.

Inspect the autoinjector from time to time before needing it to ensure the blue safety release (EpiPen® or EpiPen Jr®) is not raised and that the autoinjector can be easily remove from the carrier tube.

Do not remove the blue safety release (EpiPen® or EpiPen Jr®) or the gray end caps (Adrenaclick®) on the autoinjector until you are ready to use it. Do not put your thumb, fingers, or hand over the orange (EpiPen® or EpiPen Jr®) or red (Adrenaclick®) tip of the autoinjector or over the needle of the Symjepi„¢ prefilled syringe.

If you are about to use the autoinjector, pull up straight the blue safety release (EpiPen® or EpiPen Jr®) with one hand and hold the pen with the other hand. Do not flip the blue safety release off using the thumb or by pulling it sideways, or by bending and twisting it. This may activate the device by accident (a "click" is heard, the orange needle is extended, and the window is blocked), making it unusable in case of an emergency. Push the needle end (orange end of the autoinjector) firmly against the outer thigh until it "clicks". This signals that the injection has started. The autoinjector needs to stay in place for a minimum of 3 seconds following activation.

If you use the Symjepi„¢ prefilled syringe, do not remove the needle cap until you are ready to use it.

You may need to use more than one injection if your allergic reaction does not get better after the first shot. Your doctor will give you additional doses if you need more than 2 injections. If you are using Adrenalin®, you may inject every 5 to 10 minutes as needed.

You may inject the medicine through your clothing, if you need to.

Some liquid will remain in the autoinjector or vial after the medicine has been injected. This medicine cannot be reused. Give your used autoinjector or vial to your healthcare provider when you seek medical care.

Carry this medicine with you at all times for emergency use in case you have a severe allergic reaction.

Make sure family members or other people you are with know how to inject the medicine in case you are not able to do it yourself.

A severe allergic reaction can be life-threatening, so there is no reason this medicine should not be used.
