How To Use EpiPen®
Remove the EpiPen® Auto-Injector from the carrier tube and follow these 2 simple steps:
- Hold firmly with orange tip pointing downward.
- Remove blue safety cap by pulling straight up.
Do not bend or twist.
- Swing and push orange tip firmly into mid-outer thigh until you hear a 'click'.
- Hold on thigh for several seconds.
Built-in needle protection.
After injection, the orange cover automatically extends to ensure the needle is never exposed.
Call 911 after using EpiPen®.
Using EpiPen® does not replace seeing a doctor or going to the hospital.
The effects of epinephrine can wear off or you could have a second reaction, so call 911, or go to the emergency room right after using EpiPen®.
If your reaction continues or your symptoms return before you receive medical attention, it’s okay to use another EpiPen® until the symptoms stop.
After getting medical help, stay close to a hospital or where you can easily call 911 for the next 48 hours.
Before leaving the hospital, remember to ask for a new prescription for multiple EpiPen® Auto-Injectors.
