Changes to timing instructions on the administration of EpiPen® and EpiPen® Junior adrenaline auto-injector

6 October 2017 in Featured Articles

The Anaphylaxis Campaign ( ) have reported that Mylan UK has recently received an approval for a variation to the administration of EpiPen® and EpiPen® Junior adrenaline auto-injector.

There is no change to the device or the drug (adrenaline); the change is in the instructions for use as outlined below:

·         Reduced injection time from 10 to 3 seconds – this is based on research confirming delivery of adrenaline for 3 seconds is sufficient.

·         Removal of the massage step after the injection – this step has been removed to simplify the process of administering EpiPen® or EpiPen® Junior.

The changes are aimed to improve patient compliance.

It is important to remember that, the effectiveness of the EpiPen® and EpiPen® Junior will not be impacted regardless of whether it is held for 3 or 10 seconds.

We expect EpiPen® and EpiPen® Junior with the 3 second label to enter pharmacies in the UK from November 2017 onwards. There may still be some EpiPen® and EpiPen® Junior with the 10 second label available on the market.
