A member asked:

Can a doctor prescribe epipen (epinephrine) jr vs regular epipen (epinephrine) for an adult if they have a "mild anaphalactic" reaction?

No: Epipens (epinephrine) are only used to treat severe allergic reactions. Which one the patient should use depends on the patients weight, not the severity of the allergic reaction.
