Epinephrine is a life-saving medicine used to treat a severe allergic reaction called anaphylaxis [anna-fih-LACK-sis]. People with food allergies need to carry epinephrine with them at all times. If you or your child have food allergies, your doctor will probably write a prescription for an epinephrine device.

Your doctor will prescribe an epinephrine auto-injector that is easy to use. There are several types of epinephrine devices available. Each device has its own unique set of instructions. Understanding those differences is important so you know how to use the device your doctor prescribes.

Kids With Food Allergies (KFA) has a resource to help you learn about available epinephrine devices. Our webpage includes:

  • Current epinephrine devices
  • Links to the devicesโ€™ websites
  • Savings program information
  • Links to training videos or instructions for each type
  • Details such as available strengths, needle exposure after injection, and refill reminders

Use this resource as you talk with your doctor to decide which device is best for you and your child.
