Epinephrine is the first-line treatment for life-threatening allergic reactions (anaphylaxis). According the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases guidelines, a person experiencing anaphylaxis should use an epinephrine auto-injector and seek immediate emergency medical attention.

The products will be available in the form of two EpiPen 0.3mg 2-Pak cartons, two EpiPen Jr 0.15mg 2-Pak cartons or one 2-Pak of each kind.
