FDA Updates Instructions for EpiPens


Recommended Posts

For  EpiPen® and EpiPen Jr® auto-injectors only:

  • When you inject, hold the EpiPen firmly in place for 3 seconds.

    The labeling change that says three seconds is enough time to keep the auto-injector in the outer thigh. Previous instructions said to hold the EpiPen in place for ten seconds.
