Indication

Auvi‑Q™ (epinephrine injection, USP) is indicated in the emergency treatment of allergic reactions (Type I) including anaphylaxis to allergens, idiopathic and exercise-induced anaphylaxis. Auvi‑Q is intended for individuals with a history of anaphylaxis or who are at risk for anaphylactic reactions.

Important Safety Information

Auvi‑Q should ONLY be injected into the anterolateral aspect of the thigh. DO NOT INJECT INTO BUTTOCK OR INTRAVENOUSLY.

Epinephrine should be administered with caution to patients with certain heart diseases, and in patients who are on medications that may sensitize the heart to arrhythmias, because it may precipitate or aggravate angina pectoris and produce ventricular arrhythmias. Arrhythmias, including fatal ventricular fibrillation, have been reported in patients with underlying cardiac disease or taking cardiac glycosides or diuretics. Patients with certain medical conditions or who take certain medications for allergies, depression, thyroid disorders, diabetes, and hypertension, may be at greater risk for adverse reactions. Adverse reactions to epinephrine include anxiety, apprehensiveness, restlessness, tremor, weakness, dizziness, sweating, palpitations, pallor, nausea and vomiting, headache, and/or respiratory difficulties.

Auvi‑Q is intended for immediate self-administration as emergency supportive therapy only and is not a substitute for immediate medical or hospital care.

You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
