Did you know that certain lines of the Epipen auto-injectors were recently recalled?
Mylan, the company that produces Epipen, issued a recall of certain Epipens due to possible defects in the auto-injector devices. Make sure to visit www.mylan.com/epipenrecall to see if your Epipen is recalled and further instructions on getting it replaced.
Epipen is a self-administered Adrenaline that can immediately reverse a life-threatening allergic reaction. Your doctor may prescribe it as an emergency treatment for a food or medication allergy, a history of life-threatening reactions, or as a precaution with certain immunotherapies.
If you have any questions about the recall or about potential allergies make sure to schedule an appointment with your Allergist/Immunologist.
