The shortage of Epi-Pens continues with no update from the Epi-Pen company since October last year with the use-by date of some batches of the 0.3mg dosage being extended although none are extended beyond the end of March 2019.
It is important to note that this information only applies to Adrenalin Auto-Injectors (AAI) manufactured by the Epi-Pen company and no other brand or dosage of AAI. If you are any doubt then please speak to your GP. As always, if someone is suffering an anaphylactic reaction then you must call the Ambulance Service on 999 or 112 immediately
Full details of the situation and which batches of Epi-Pen the extension applies to can be found on the Epi-Pen website at http://www.epipen.co.uk/
