Intravenous: Yes, you may need epinephrine intravenously from time to time but please make contact with your treating physician to advise you when and when not to take an injection. You will also be advised carefully how to deliver the medication.

Yes: Can be given subcutaneously like epi pens for allergy, direct intraarterial but very rare, and in endotracheal tubes. They are used as injections to control bleeding sometimes from peptic ulcer bleeding or bronchial bleeding in the lungs.
