Every child with an Adrenaline Auto injector (like Epipen), should have an ‘Allergy Action Plan’.

The needle of Epipen (or Jext or Emerade) has to be inserted and held in the muscle for 10 seconds to deliver the drug.

    • They are all the same. Slightly different mechanism of the actual injector. In Emerade, the cap is in the same side as the needle as opposed to Epipen and Jext. Emerade is also available in 500 micrograms, which is prescribed for older children and adults.
