What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.


The Epinephrine Lifeshield is a prescription emergency anaphylaxis injection that is used to increase mean arterial blood pressure in patients with hypotension resulting from unexpected exposure to allergens that pose very serious health risks. This injection can also be used to counter septic shock and may also be prescribed for mydriasis during intraocular surgery. These emergency anaphylactic shock injections are used when the person may go into shock and be in serious danger when unable to get immediate medical care. A common example of epinephrine uses will be people with bee sting allergy who keep this product with them when outdoors during summer months. 

You can buy epinephrine pen with a prescription, and your best price on it will be when you order medication online from Canada Drugs Direct.


Epinephrine dosage is standardized with this product at 1mg of Epinephrine per 10ml of solution. 

Do not give this medicine to a child without medical advice. 


Form a fist around the device, making sure that the tip is pointing downward. 

Remove the safety cap. 

Place the tip of the auto-injector against the largest part of the outer thigh. The thigh is the most effective injection site. In an emergency, individuals may administer this injection through clothing. If giving the injection to a child you are advised to hold their leg firmly in place. 

Press the device firmly into the thigh so that the needle can administer the epinephrine dose. Hold in place for 10 seconds. 

Remove the injector from the thigh and gently rub the skin for 10 seconds. 


The active ingredient in the Lifeshield injection is Epinephrine 1mg/10ml. 


Inform your doctor of any history of asthma, depression, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, kidney disease, Parkinson's disease, or thyroid disorders before obtaining an epinephrine Lifeshield injection.

Medication must be kept with you in any instance where the possibility of allergen exposure exists.

Always keep injection in packaging and do not remove cap until you are 100% ready and need to provide yourself with an injection to prevent anaphylactic shock. 

The auto-injector device is a disposable single-use system. Use an auto-injector only one time. 

Do not try to reinsert an auto-injector a second time. Injury to skin may occur. 

Receive medical attention after any use of epinephrine. The effects of epinephrine may wear off after 10 or 20 minutes, and it is always best to see a doctor or qualified medical professional as soon as possible for further treatment and observation.

Side Effects

Side effects from using an epinephrine lifeline injection are possible, and some users may have anxiety, breathing problems, dizziness, headaches, nausea, pale skin, elevated heart rate, sweating, vomiting, or weakness. If epinephrine side effects are seen it may be best to meet with a doctor again before future epinephrine injection uses to determine if your concerns over side effects may warrant a medication change or different anaphylactic shock prevention approaches.
