Epi Pen is used to treat severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) to insect stings or bites, foods, drugs, and other allergens.

Your medicine may also come with a "trainer pen." The trainer pen contains no medicine and no needle.

It is only for non-emergency use to practice giving yourself an Epi Pen injection.

Do not use a trainer pen to treat an allergic reaction.

The auto-injector device is a disposable single-use system that comes with patient instructions for safe and effective use.

Accidentally injecting Epi Pen into your hands or feet may result in a loss of blood flow to those areas, and resulting numbness. Before using Epi Pen a second time, call your doctor if your first injection caused a side effect such as increased breathing difficulty, or dangerously high blood pressure (severe headache, blurred vision, buzzing in your ears, anxiety, confusion, chest pain, shortness of breath, uneven heartbeats, seizure).

Call your doctor at once if you notice pain, swelling, warmth, redness, or other signs of infection around the area where you gave an injection.

To make sure Epi Pen is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have ever had: It is not known whether Epi Pen will harm an unborn baby.
