EpiPen® Epinephrine Injectable Pen


  • 0.3mg/3mL – 1 EpiPen – $171
  • 0.3mg/3mL – 2 EpiPens – $300


EpiPen® contains epinephrine, a medication that can help decrease your body’s allergic reaction by:

  • Relaxing the muscles in your airways to make breathing easier
  • Helping to reverse the rapid and dangerous decrease in blood pressure
  • Relaxing the muscles in the stomach, intestines, and bladder
  • EpiPen® is for emergency treatment only and does not replace seeing a healthcare provider or going to the hospital.

How to store EpiPen®

Storing your EpiPen® Auto-Injector properly can help keep it effective and ready to use in the event of a severe allergic reaction.

When storing EpiPen®, follow these recommendations:

  • Keep your EpiPen® Auto-Injector at room temperature
    • Do not expose to direct sunlight
    • Do not refrigerate or freeze
    • Do not keep EpiPen® in a vehicle during extremely hot or cold weather
  • Keep your EpiPen® Auto-Injector in its carrier tube to protect it from damage; but remember, the carrier tube is not waterproof
  • Keep the blue safety cap, which helps prevent accidental injection, on until you need to use EpiPen®
  • Do not drop
  • Do not keep folded paper instructions or any other objects in the carrier tube with EpiPen®; they may prevent you from retrieving your auto-injector quickly in a severe allergic emergency

Occasionally inspect the EpiPen® solution through the viewing window.
The solution should always be clear.

Replace your EpiPen® Auto-Injector if you see:

  • Discoloured or brown solution
  • Solid particles (also called precipitate)
  • Any signs of leakage or damage to the carrier

Ask your pharmacist or physician about how to properly dispose of an EpiPen® Auto-Injector that’s discoloured, used, or expired. Never try taking the auto-injector apart.
