Questions About The Re-Designed Epipen


What are the differences between the re-designed Epipen and the original EpiPen?


A. It is important to understand that the re- designed Epipen and EpiPen 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 EpiPens. Importantly, the administration of the EpiPen 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 EpiPen 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 EpiPen 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 EpiPen which has been revised to be more visual in order to aid in accurate use of the EpiPen.

  3. Lastly, the oval shape makes the EpiPen 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 Epipen?


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


How do I administer my re-designed Epipen?


A. Though the re-designed Epipen 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 EpiPen is released from the injection site, the orange needle cover will automatically extend and immediately locks in place.


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


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


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


A. The instructions on the EpiPen 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 EpiPen 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 EpiPen has been activated?


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


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


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 EpiPen come with needle protection?


A. EpiPen 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 EpiPen is removed from the injection site.


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


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


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 EpiPen expires the last day (31st) of January 2012, thus the expiration date in this example would be January 31, 2012. Further, Expiration dates on EpiPen (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 Epipen and my original EpiPen?


A. Although the outward appearance of the 2 EpiPens is different, both products have the same functionality or mechanics. Further, the medication delivered by the re-designed Epipen or EpiPen Jr is still epinephrine of the same formulation and respective dose as the original EpiPens. If more than one dose of EpiPen is required, it does not matter whether the old or re-designed presentation of EpiPen 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.
