Can sulfite-sensitive patients use EpiPen®?1

The EpiPen® Auto-Injector contains sodium metabisulphite and may cause allergic-type reactions, including anaphylactic symptoms or mild to severe asthmatic episodes in certain susceptible persons.

Epinephrine is the drug of choice for serious allergic reactions and the presence of a sulphite in this product should not prevent administration of the drug for treatment of serious allergic or other emergency situations, even if the patient is sulphite-sensitive.
