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 patients with a history of anaphylactic reactions or who are
at increased risk for anaphylaxis.
Important Safety Information
AUVI-Q is intended for immediate self-administration as emergency supportive
therapy only and is not a substitute for immediate medical care.
In conjunction with the administration of epinephrine, the patient should
seek immediate medical or hospital care.
Each AUVI-Q contains a single dose of epinephrine for single-use injection.
More than two sequential doses of epinephrine should only be administered
under direct medical supervision. Since the doses of epinephrine delivered
from AUVI-Q are fixed, consider using other forms of injectable epinephrine
if doses lower than 0.1 mg are deemed necessary.
AUVI-Q should ONLY be injected into the anterolateral aspect of the
thigh. Do not inject intravenously, or into buttock, digits, hands, or feet.
Instruct caregivers to hold the leg of young children and infants firmly in

they develop any of the following symptoms at an injection site: redness

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. Common adverse reactions to epinephrine include
