Advice for healthcare professionals:

    • it is recommended that 2 adrenaline auto-injectors are prescribed, which patients should carry at all times

    • ensure that people with allergies and their carers have been trained to use the particular auto-injector that they have been prescribed—technique varies between injectors

    • encourage people with allergies and their carers to obtain and practise using a trainer device (available for free from the manufacturers’ websites)

Please prescribe generically - There are variable stock shortages of each of the three brands Jext, Emerade and Epipen therefore it is best to prescribe generically.
