If you have severe allergies, you should keep two epinephrine injection kits with you at all times and readily available. If you experience any sign of anaphylaxis, do not hesitate to use the autoinjector even if those symptoms do not appear to be allergy related. Using the autoinjector as a precaution will not harm you. Call 911 even if you administer the injection.

  • Watch for worsening symptoms, including signs of anaphylaxis.
