How many EpiPen 2-Pak® cartons does a patient need?

You may notice that doctors are prescribing EpiPen 2-Pak® cartons for multiple locations to help patients be prepared for anaphylactic emergencies. Here’s why it’s important to dispense as written:

  • Nearly half of anaphylactic reactions occur outside the home—in places like work, school, restaurants, outdoors or while traveling1
  • Patients should have immediate access to 2 epinephrine auto-injectors at all times, according to National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) guidelines. Up to 20% of patients may require a second dose of epinephrine, due to protracted symptoms or a biphasic reaction. Dispensing multiple cartons helps keep patients from splitting up EpiPen 2-Pak® cartons2,3

It's about familiarity.

Always dispense epinephrine auto-injector prescriptions as written. Many patients, caregivers and school nurses are familiar with EpiPen® Auto-Injector.5 Dispensing a different auto-injector than what patients are prescribed and trained on could lead to patient confusion, according to Ram et al.6 (Patients may watch a step-by-step video at epipen.com.)

There's no time for errors.

Epinephrine auto-injectors are used under stressful conditions for emergency treatment of life-threatening allergic reactions, during which epinephrine must be administered quickly and correctly.3,6,7

All epinephrine auto-injectors are not the same.

Different brands of epinephrine auto-injectors have different instructions for use. Therapeutic interchange from one epinephrine auto-injector to another impacts workflow, including prescriber approval and patient training on the alternate device.6
