13 FEBRUARY 2020


Availability of EpiPen® 0.3mg and 0.15mg AdrenalineAuto-Injectors


Mylan’s manufacturing partner Meridian Medical Technologies, a subsidiary of Pfizer that manufactures EpiPen®, has experienced manufacturing challenges which has resulted in interruptions in the production of EpiPen 0.3mg and EpiPen Jr 0.15mg Adrenaline Auto-Injectors (AAIs). To help manage product availability on an ongoing basis until a steady supply resumes, Mylan assigned a prescription validation process for EpiPen 0.3mg, meaning patients can obtain up to a maximum of two EpiPen 0.3mg AAIs per prescription. There is no prescription validation process in place for EpiPen 0.15mg. Patients should follow the Instructions for Patients detailed below to fulfil their prescriptions and pharmacies should follow the Instructions for Pharmacists outlined below when placing orders.
