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

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.8

More Important Safety Information

EpiPen® (epinephrine injection, USP) 0.3 mg and EpiPen Jr® (epinephrine injection, USP) 0.15 mg Auto-Injectors are intended for immediate administration as emergency supportive therapy only and are not intended as a substitute for immediate medical or hospital care. In conjunction with the administration of epinephrine, the patient should seek immediate medical or hospital care. More than two sequential doses of epinephrine should only be administered under direct medical supervision.

EpiPen® and EpiPen Jr® should only be injected into the anterolateral aspect of the thigh. Do not inject intravenously, into buttock, or into digits, hands, or feet. Instruct caregivers to hold the leg of young children firmly in place and limit movement prior to and during injection to minimize risk of injection-related injury.

Rare cases of serious skin and soft tissue infections have been reported following epinephrine injection. Advise patients to seek medical care if they develop symptoms of infection such as persistent redness, warmth, swelling, or tenderness at the injection site.

Epinephrine should be used with caution in patients with heart disease, and in patients who are on drugs that may sensitize the heart to arrhythmias, because it may precipitate or aggravate angina pectoris and produce ventricular arrhythmias. Arrhythmias, including fatal ventricular fibrillation, have been reported, particularly in patients with underlying cardiac disease or taking cardiac glycosides, diuretics, or anti-arrhythmics.

Patients with certain medical conditions or who take certain medications for allergies, depression, thyroid disorders, diabetes, and hypertension, may be at greater risk for adverse reactions. Common adverse reactions to epinephrine include anxiety, apprehensiveness, restlessness, tremor, weakness, dizziness, sweating, palpitations, pallor, nausea and vomiting, headache, and/or respiratory difficulties.

Indications

EpiPen® and EpiPen Jr® Auto-Injectors are indicated in the emergency treatment of Type I allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, to allergens, idiopathic and exercise-induced anaphylaxis, and in patients with a history or increased risk of anaphylactic reactions. Selection of the appropriate dosage strength is determined according to body weight.
