In brief: All severe allergies

Epipen (epinephrine) is self injectable Epinephrine and the medication of choice for any severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis).
It is effective for allergic reactions triggers by pet dander, medications, latex, foods, stinging insects, pollens, etc. An allergist may be able to offer other treatment options in an effort to avoid needing epipen (epinephrine).
