What Happenss If Someone Uses An Eppi Pen
May be ineffective: It is unlikely that anything bad will happen except it may not work as well as a new epi-pen. There is a window to check the clarity of the medication and make sure it is clear, or it may be contaminated or the product has precipitated out of solution. I don't recommend that you rely on an expired product in a life threatening reaction.See 1 more doctor answer
Insulin pen: Surely there is only a small amount of insulin that ever gets in to your pen. In that case you don't need to worry but you must cover the site that you injected just in case there is more bleeding. Unlikely! Do you type 1 or type 2 diabetes? Have you considered an insulin pump? The technology is moving forward very quickly. Talk to your doctor.
Verify with pharmacy: It is important to verify your dose and make sure you are 100% sure how to use it correctly. Your fertility doctor can help provide guidance to make sure it is used effectively and safely. Here is an online video demonstrating the setup and use: http://www.freedommedteach.com/eng/videos.html?play=gonal_f_rff_rediject_pen
Unusual problem: I have never actually seen this happen. There must be something defective about the pen you are using. I would discard it and use a new pen. There is no mechanism for drawing back on the pens, so it should never occur that blood goes into the pen.See 1 more doctor answer
I had my humira (adalimumab) pen next to a bag of ice while traveling 2 hours. The ice melted and the pen got wet. Should i still use it?
Yes: The pen is still fine to use.
No one knows: There haven't been any long term studies into the possible damage done by e-cigarettes. The general consensus by the medical community is, if you don't smoke, don't start "vaping". If you are a smoker and are looking for something less toxic than cigarettes, then a shisha pen would be a safer alternative, with the long term goal being to quit using the shisha pen once off the nicotine addiction.
Maybe, maybe not: Many individuals mistake a viral nasophryngitis for sinusitis which is a closed airspace infection, unilateral and much less common. Pen vk has limited utility because of resistance. Would consult your doctor before taking left-over antibiotics which is what it sounds like you are getting ready to do.
ASAP after...: If you are truly allergic to certain foods, e.g., peanut, or bee venom and you accidentally ingest peanut or get stung by bee, you need Epinephrine as soon as possible. Epinephrine is a life saving medicine.
Waste 100 bucks: An amazingly safe medication. In the seventies we used Epinephrine to treat acute asthma attacks giving kids 3 doses in 40 minutes. Sometimes they had nausea & vomiting. Sometimes they'd get a little hyper. The nausea & vomiting could also have been due to asthma itself. Anyway, expect slight but brief rise in pulse, mild muscle jitteriness, heightened alertness. All resolve in 30 minutes.
Carefull: Novolet is the first prefilled and disposable pen available meaning youvare done with it you throw it away, it implies that it filled with nph insulin. Novorapid (insulin aspart) on the other hand is a brand of fast acting Insulin that comes in cartriges that can go on the novopen which is a refillable pen(you do not toss it you change the cartrige. The first one is slow acting Insulin the second fast. Like apple.
Yes: In Asthma, there is Bronchospasm. Narrowing of the Air passage. Epipen (epinephrine) is used for Anaphylactic reaction where there is sudden closer of Air passage. Make sure you do not have heart disease. Currently there are many Inhalers and Special medicine which helps Bronchospasm without affecting Heart. Go to Hospital.See 1 more doctor answer
Hard to know: The best way to prove anaphylaxis is to demonstrate elevated tryptase levels (blood test) at the time of the reaction. Often, this test is not done as symptoms and timing with suspected trigger is enough to diagnose and treat. If one suspects they have had an anaphylactic reaction (now resolved), then they should urgently discuss with a physician to see if epi prescription is needed.
If you had a child under 66 lbs go into anaphylactic shock and you only had an adult epi pen would you use iron the child?
YES- however...: Anaphylactic shock can be fatal and the most effective treatment is injectable epinephrine so I would give it as the risk of too much epinephrine is less than the risk of the child dying from anaphylaxis. However, if you think a child is at risk of anaphylaxis it would be wise to get an EpiPen Jr.See 3 more doctor answers
