EpiPen Alternative Is Available
Released: 10/28/2016
By: Carl Richie, Pharmacy Director

A generic equivalent of Adrenaclick (epinephrine auto-injector) is available from Impax Laboratories. The epinephrine auto-injector is an emergency injection of epinephrine. It is used to treat severe allergic reactions to insect stings/bites, foods, drugs and other allergens. The epinephrine auto-injector by Impax Laboratories is available in 0.15mg and 0.3mg strengths. The 0.3mg strength is a generic equivalent to EpiPen and has a current cost savings of approximately 38%, when compared to the brand EpiPen. It is anticipated that other generic epinephrine auto-injectors will be introduced to the market by other manufacturers, pending FDA approval. The epinephrine auto-injector is designed for single-dose use by patients and does not take the place of emergency medical care.
