There has been an important update to the manufacturer's instructions for using Epipen® - the adrenaline auto-injector prescribed for anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction). The update further simplifies the procedure with two main changes:

  1. The injection hold time has been reduced from 10 seconds to 3 seconds (0:03)
  2. It is no longer necessary to rub the injection site

As the Epipen® itself has not changed, you do not need to replace any current non-expired Epipens and you can start using the new simplified procedure right away.
