It starts with a plan

Whether you’ve just found out you’re at risk for a life-threatening (severe) allergic reaction or you are the parent of an at-risk child, being prepared starts with a plan that involves these four steps:

  • Avoid known allergens
  • Know what symptoms to watch for
  • Use an EpiPen® (epinephrine injection, USP) Auto-Injector if a life-threatening (severe) allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) occurs
  • Get emergency medical help right away
