AUVI-Q® (epinephrine injection, USP) is a prescription
medicine used to treat life-threatening allergic reactions, including
anaphylaxis, in people who are at risk for or have a history of serious
Important Safety Information
AUVI-Q is for immediate self (or caregiver) administration and does not take
the place of emergency medical care. Seek immediate medical treatment after
using AUVI-Q. Each AUVI-Q contains a single dose of epinephrine. AUVI-Q
should only be injected into your outer thigh, through clothing if
necessary. If you inject a young child or infant with AUVI-Q, hold their leg
firmly in place before and during the injection to prevent injuries. Do not
inject AUVI-Q into any other part of your body, such as into veins,
buttocks, fingers, toes, hands, or feet. If this occurs, seek immediate
medical treatment and make sure to inform the healthcare provider of the
location of the accidental injection. Only a healthcare provider should give
additional doses of epinephrine if more than two doses are necessary for a
single allergic emergency.
Rarely, patients who use AUVI-Q may develop infections at the injection site
within a few days of an injection. Some of these infections can be serious.
Call your healthcare provider right away if you have any of the following
symptoms at an injection site: redness that does not go away, swelling,
tenderness, or the area feels warm to the touch.
If you have certain medical conditions, or take certain medicines, your
condition may get worse or you may have more or longer lasting side
effects when you use AUVI-Q.
Be sure to tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take,
especially medicines for asthma. Also tell your healthcare provider about
all of your medical conditions, especially if you have asthma, a history of
depression, thyroid problems, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, heart problems
or high blood pressure, have any other medical conditions, are pregnant or
plan to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed.
Epinephrine should be used with caution if you have heart disease or are
taking certain medicines that can cause heart-related (cardiac) symptoms.
Common side effects include fast, irregular or ‘pounding’ heartbeat,
sweating, shakiness, headache, paleness, feelings of over excitement,
nervousness, or anxiety, weakness, dizziness, nausea and vomiting, or
breathing problems. These side effects usually go away quickly, especially
if you rest. Tell your healthcare provider if you have any side effect that
bothers you or that does not go away.
