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.

Description

The epipen is a prescription injection medication that is used for anaphylaxis treatment, and users most commonly keep their pen with them for stopping severe allergic reactions quickly and effectively if any incident occurs.

This can be for allergic reactions to insect stings, foods, drugs, or any other allergen that creates such a strong response that the person has symptoms like extreme breathing difficulties, blood pressure drops, severe skin itching, or hives. The epinephrine in this allergy injection pen narrows blood vessels and opens the airways of the lungs to counter the immune system overresponse.

Directions

Your EpiPen dosage will be determined by your doctor, and it is important to always follow the provided instructions exactly as indicated with your prescription.

Do not remove the safety cap until you are ready to use EpiPen.

Never place your fingers over the injector tip until the safety cap has been removed.

Form a fist around the interjector, and while ensure that the black tip is pointing down. Next pull of the safety cap.

Place the back tip against your outer thigh, and pointing down towards the fleshy area in the middle of the thigh. Push the auto injector into the thing with one quick motion to release the spring-loaded needle. You may administer the dose through clothing if necessary.

Hold the auto-injector in place for a few seconds. Remove the auto-injector from the thigh and then carefully re-insert the used needle into the carrying tube. Re cap the tube and take it with you as you go to get medical attention.

It is essential that you seek medical attention every time after you use an EpiPen. The allergic reaction treatment effectiveness may wear off within 20 minutes and you may require further treatment and / or observation.
