Allerject™ is indicated for the emergency treatment of serious allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) and is intended for people who are at risk and for people with a history of serious allergic reactions (anaphylaxis). Allerject™ should be used immediately to treat yourself or your child when experiencing a severe allergic reaction. This is emergency treatment. It does not replace seeing a doctor or going to the hospital. After injection, seek immediate medical attention. Allerject™ contains epinephrine, which is the medication used for the treatment of anaphylaxis.
Research shows that many patients do not know how to correctly use their auto-injector. In studies, only a modest proportion of patients (30–44%) who had been prescribed auto-injectors were able to demonstrate correct self-administration.
Allerject™ has been designed to address these concerns. It is the only epinephrine auto-injector with voice instructions. It guides patients and caregivers step-by-step, calmly and efficiently, through the injection process.
Allerject™ is available with voice instructions in either English or French.
Allerject™ has a number of other features designed to make it easy to use.
The injector has been designed to be easy-to-use, portable and ergonomic in order to assist patients with complying with recommendations that epinephrine should be available at all times and administered without delay in an allergic emergency.
