Questions About The Re-Designed EpipenŽ


What are the differences between the re-designed EpipenŽ and the original EpiPenŽ?


A. It is important to understand that the re- designed EpipenŽ and EpiPenŽ Jr have the same reliable auto-injector mechanical properties and contain the same dose and formulation of epinephrine. The needle gauge (bore or diameter) and length are exactly the same as the preceding version of EpiPenŽs. Importantly, the administration of the EpiPenŽ is exactly the same, only the colours of the safety release (formerly gray now blue) and the injection tip (formerly black now orange) has been changed. The colours of the ends or tips of the EpiPenŽ were changed to make them more distinguishable, especially among users who may be colour blind and may have difficulty distinguishing colours.


There has been a change to the shape of the injector from round to a larger oval shape:


  1. The oval shape allows for the mechanics of the automatic needle protection device. This has been added to prevent accidental needle sticks.

    • Once the dose is administered and the EpiPenŽ is released from the injection site, the orange needle cover automatically extends and immediately locks in place encasing the needle to prevent accidental needle sticks.

    • Further, the way the orange needle cover is designed the patient never actually sees the needle either prior to or after administration of the dose.

  2. The oval shape also allows for more surface area for the labelling information and administration instructions on the EpiPenŽ which has been revised to be more visual in order to aid in accurate use of the EpiPenŽ.

  3. Lastly, the oval shape makes the EpiPenŽ easy to grip in your hand and it also makes it more recognizable as a medical product, differentiating it from an item of a comparable shape or appearance (e.g., ink pen, lipstick or chap-stick container, cigar, etc.).

Is there any change in the medication of the re- designed EpipenŽ?


A. The medication delivered by the re-designed EpipenŽ or EpiPenŽ Jr is still epinephrine of the same formulation and respective dose. Although the outward appearance of the EpiPenŽs is different, both products have the same functionality or mechanics as the preceding style of EpiPenŽs. Importantly, tests were performed with the re-designed EpipenŽ products to ensure that the chemistry (medication and dose) and functionality of the EpiPenŽ was comparable to the preceding style of EpiPenŽ.


How do I administer my re-designed EpipenŽ?


A. Though the re-designed EpipenŽ may look different it still requires the same 2 simple steps to administer the dose:


  1. Remove the blue safety release

  2. Swing and push the orange tip, firmly into the mid- outer thigh so that it 'clicks' and hold on the thigh for several seconds


Seek medical attention immediately.


When the dose is administered and the EpiPenŽ is released from the injection site, the orange needle cover will automatically extend and immediately locks in place.


Give any used EpiPenŽs to emergency responders or emergency room personnel to discard.


These instructions are found on the barrel of the EpiPenŽ as well as in the prescribing information.


How many seconds should I hold the re-designed EpipenŽ in place when I inject?


A. The instructions on the EpiPenŽ cartridge state you should swing the arm and push the orange tip firmly into the mid-outer thigh so it 'clicks' and hold it on the thigh for several seconds. By holding the EpiPenŽ in place at the injection site for several seconds, it helps assure that the dose of epinephrine has been delivered satisfactorily.


How do I know if my EpiPenŽ has been activated?


A. The extended orange needle cover and obscured window indicates that EpiPenŽ has delivered the drug.


What should I do if I accidentally remove the safety release from my re-designed EpipenŽ?


A. If the unit has not been activated, then the safety release can be carefully replaced.


Because removing the safety release prepares the unit for activation, you should gently place the unit in its needle-safe storage tube. Make sure the safety release end faces towards the opening, and secure the blue safety release in place. Be very careful to keep your fingers clear of each end.


Does EpiPenŽ come with needle protection?


A. EpiPenŽ has a needle protection device (orange needle cover or sheath) built-in within the unit. This device automatically deploys or extends when the dose is administered and the EpiPenŽ is removed from the injection site.


The extended needle protection sheath will prevent the EpiPenŽ from fitting back into the carrier tube.


How do I read the expiry date on my re-designed EpipenŽ?


A. The expiration date is expressed as the month and the last 2 digits of the year. For example an expiration designation of "Exp: JA 12" indicates that the EpiPenŽ expires the last day (31st) of January 2012, thus the expiration date in this example would be January 31, 2012. Further, Expiration dates on EpiPenŽ (Canada) are different than product from the U.S. The Canadian product is designed to be "bilingual friendly", e.g. JA = Jan, JN = June, JL = July, MA = May, MR = March.


If more than one dose is required, can I use my re- designed EpipenŽ and my original EpiPenŽ?


A. Although the outward appearance of the 2 EpiPenŽs is different, both products have the same functionality or mechanics. Further, the medication delivered by the re-designed EpipenŽ or EpiPenŽ Jr is still epinephrine of the same formulation and respective dose as the original EpiPenŽs. If more than one dose of EpiPenŽ is required, it does not matter whether the old or re-designed presentation of EpiPenŽ is used; as long as the product is still within the expiration date.


REMEMBER to always protect your EpiPen® or AnaPen by using an insulated Auto-Injector pouch such as the Activeaide EpiPen® pouch. The only pouch that is hospital approved.
