What is Epi-Pen and How to Take It

Epi-pen contains drugs from the therapeutic classes of Adrenergic bronchodilators, Vasopressors, and Catecholamines. It is known by the brand name EpiPen and comes in dosage forms of 0.3 mg or 0.15 mg solution, vial, autoinjector syringe, and prefilled syringe.

The Epi-pen is an auto-injector that delivers a dose of the hormone epinephrine, also known as adrenaline, into the body. This treatment functions by effectively alleviating the symptoms associated with anaphylaxis. Epipen delivers medicines quickly and effectively to patients with food allergies or any other common triggers.

Hold the pen in a fist from the blue end facing up to the sky, check the window on the side of the pen, swing your hand back, and insert it into your thigh. If you are using it for someone else, follow the same method but just have them sit and kneel before them and insert it in their thighs.
