Mylan UK has recently received an approval for a variation to the administration of EpiPen® and EpiPen® Junior adrenaline autoinjector.

There is no change to the device or the drug (adrenaline); the change is in the instructions for use as outlined below:

  • Reduced injection time from 10 to 3 seconds – this is based on research confirming delivery of adrenaline for 3 seconds is sufficient.
  • Removal of the massage step after the injection – this step has been removed to simplify the process of administering EpiPen® or EpiPen® Junior.
