What is Gvoke HypoPen?
Gvoke Hypopen (glucagon injection) is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Xeris Pharmaceuticals, Inc. It contains a room temperature, liquid-stable form of glucagon that is auto-injected when pressed against the body, similar to how an EpiPen works to treat severe allergic reactions.
Gvoke Hypopen is the first pre-mixed, pre-filled syringe (PFS), and pre-measured liquid glucagon indicated for the treatment of severe hypoglycemia (severe low blood sugar levels) in emergency situations in adults and pediatric patients aged 2 years and above with diabetes.
What doses of Gvoke HypoPen are available?
Gvoke Hypopen is available in injection form, in the following doses: 0.5 mg/0.1 mL single-dose pre-filled HypoPen auto-injector, 1 mg/0.2 mL single-dose pre-filled HypoPen auto-injector, 0.5 mg/0.1 mL single-dose pre-filled syringe, 1 mg/0.2 mL single-dose pre-filled syringe.
Please read the prescribing information and instructions for use and always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
Gvoke HypoPen active ingredients
Gvoke Hypopen contains glucagon as the active ingredient.
Gvoke HypoPen side effects
The most common side effects of Gvoke Hypopen in clinical trials include:
- Nausea, vomiting
- Injection site edema raised 1 mm or greater, injection site discomfort, reaction, and urticaria
- Abdominal pain
In rare instances, Gvoke Hypopen can cause more serious side effects. These can include:
- Catecholamine release in patients with pheochromocytoma
- Hypoglycemia in patients with insulinoma – if a patient develops symptoms of hypoglycemia after a dose of Gvoke, give glucose orally or intravenously
- Hypersensitivity and allergic reactions, including generalized rash, anaphylactic shock with breathing difficulties, and hypotension
- Lack of efficacy in patients with decreased hepatic glycogen. Patients in states of starvation, with adrenal insufficiency or chronic hypoglycemia may not have adequate levels of hepatic glycogen for Gvoke to be effective. Treat patients with these conditions with glucose
- Necrolytic migratory erythema (NME) – should NME occur, consider whether the benefits of continuous glucagon infusion outweigh the risks
- Hypoglycemia in patients with glucagonoma – test patients suspected of having glucagonoma for blood levels of glucagon before treatment, and monitor blood glucose levels during treatment. If a patient develops hypoglycemia, give glucose orally or intravenously
Your caregiver will assess the benefits of using Gvoke Hypopen against your risk of side effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Gvoke Hypopen to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

Gvoke Hypopen can interact with other medications. These include:

This list is not exhaustive and other prescription drugs may interact with Gvoke Hypopen.
