There is now a generic (not EpiPen specific) Personal ASCIA Action Plan for Anaphylaxis for use with any brand of adrenaline (epinephrine) autoinjector, also available on the ASCIA Website. There is a space to insert specific instructions for the prescribed device in the bottom left corner. This plan can be used if a student is prescribed an adrenaline (epinephrine) autoinjector device other than EpiPen.
Update on other types of adrenaline (epinephrine) autoinjectors:
- EpiPen remains in Australia.
- ‘Emerade’ will not be coming to Australia, now that EpiPen supply is back to normal.
- ‘Adrenaline Mylan’ is a generic device now available in Australia. It works in exactly the same way as the EpiPen device so the EpiPen trainers can be used to train for both these devices.
