In brief: Epipen (epinephrine) & Vomiting

Epipens (epinephrine) are used to treat the symptoms of a severe allergic reaction.
The contain epinepherine which halts your bodies response to whatever it is your allergic to. It is not a treatment for vomitting. You need to get yourself another medication for this - but most causes of vomitting are self limiting and will go away without any treatment. Obviously if it doesnt stop or you vomit blood see doc.
