How many EpiPen 2-Pak® (or its authorized generic) cartons does a patient need?
You may notice that doctors are prescribing EpiPen 2-Pak® (or its authorized generic) cartons for multiple locations to help patients be prepared for anaphylactic emergencies:Here’s why it’s important to dispense the appropriate product:
- 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 patients have access to a second dose of epinephrine if they need it.2,3

It's about familiarity.
Always dispense epinephrine auto-injector prescriptions as appropriate. Many patients, caregivers and school nurses are familiar with EpiPen® Auto-Injector.6.And Mylan's authorized generic is identical in design and function to EpiPen® Auto-Injectors7.But dispensing a different auto-injector than what patients are prescribed and trained on could lead to patient confusion, according to Ram et al.8 (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.3,8,9
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.8
