What is Epipen?

Epipen is a pre-filled auto-injector containing epinephrine, used for the treatment of life-threatening emergencies such as anaphylaxis in people who are at risk of or have a history of serious life-threatening allergic emergencies. Allergic reactions can be caused by insect bites or stings, foods, drugs, and any other allergens. Epinephrine can also be used to treat exercise-induced anaphylaxis.

EpiPen may be used for self-injection by a person with a history of severe allergic reactions.

Epipen active ingredients

Epinephrine is a hormone produced naturally in your body by your adrenal glands as well as the medulla oblongata. It is classed as an alpha and a beta-receptor agonist or more simply as a stimulant.

Epinephrine helps to narrow your blood vessels and open the airways in your lungs. This effect reverses severe low blood pressure, wheezing, severe skin itching, and other symptoms of an allergic reaction.

Epipen side effects

The most common side effect caused by Epipen include:

  • Difficulty sleeping

Some side effects may go away during treatment as your body adjusts to the medicine. Epipen can cause more serious side effects. These include:

  • Headache, nausea, vomiting
  • Blurred vision, dizziness, sweating, fast heart rate, pounding in the ears
  • Seizures
  • Difficulty speaking, confusion, tremors
  • Pain in the chest, arms, back, jaw, or neck
  • Nervousness

Epipen drug interactions

Epipen can interact with other medications. This can change how Epipen and the other medications work and can make some side effects more likely. Tell your prescribing doctor about all drugs you are taking, particularly:

  • Digoxin
  • Levothyroxine
  • Antidepressants – amitriptyline, doxepin, imipramine, nortriptyline, trimipramine
  • Beta-blockers – carvedilol, labetalol, nadolol, propranolol, sotalol, timolol
  • Ergot medicine – ergotamine, dihydroergotamine
  • MAO inhibitors – phenelzine, rasagiline, tranylcypromine
  • Diabetic medication – empagliflozin, glipizide, insulin, metformin
