MEDA Pharmaceuticals UK, suppliers of EpiPen® and EpiPen® Jr Auto-Injectors (0.3 and 0.15 mg adrenaline), has assured the Department of Health that it has adequate product supply to cover all patients requiring replacement adrenaline auto-injectors (AAI) with immediate effect.

This confirmation is made in light of the voluntary product recall of Anapen® by Lincoln Medical which was announced on 23rd May 2012.

A life-threatening allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) can be caused by triggers such as food, stinging and biting insects, medicines, latex, or even exercise.

Sufficient stock levels of EpiPen® and EpiPen® Jr Auto-Injectors (0.3 and 0.15 mg adrenaline) are available to cover all patients in the UK who require new AAIs.

    hi i just wanted to ask why does our pharmacy give us epi pens with short expiry dates.
    thank you.

      What is the usual time lapse between a post on this website and and answer from your people to the question? Fazilat’s March 11th 2013 question still appears to be outstanding.
      I look forward to the response to this one and the one that emailed to the info address above?
