Twinject How to Take

Twinject (Epinephrine) belongs to a family of medications called sympathomimetics. These medications resemble chemicals that are normally found in our bodies and are released during stressful situations, such as when we are scared, anxious, or angry.

Twinject (Epinephrine) is used for the emergency treatment of severe allergic reactions (Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction)) to insect bites, insect stings, food, medication, as well as other allergens (e.g., latex). During a severe allergic reaction, blood pressure can become dangerously low, breathing can become difficult, and the face and throat can swell. Others signs and symptoms can include Hives, flushing, fast heart rate, paleness, weakness, dizziness, stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, and Diarrhea. Twinject (Epinephrine) works to reverse these effects.

Twinject (Epinephrine) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Twinject (Epinephrine) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Twinject (Epinephrine) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Twinject (Epinephrine) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are being given Twinject (Epinephrine), speak to your doctor. Do not stop using Twinject (Epinephrine) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Twinject (Epinephrine) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to use Twinject (Epinephrine) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Twinject Dosage

The usual dose of Twinject (Epinephrine) is based on your body weight, your risk of experiencing a serious allergic reaction, and your ability to tolerate the medication. The usual dose for children and adults who weigh 30 kg or more is 0.3 mg. For adults and children who weigh 15 kg to 30 kg, the dose is 0.15 mg. For children who weigh less than 15 mg, other forms of injectable Twinject (Epinephrine) may be prescribed.

The medication is injected into the thigh with use of an autoinjector, which is a device that resembles a pen. To use the autoinjector, remove the caps on each end. Then, place the red tip of the pen against the thigh and press hard, holding it there to let the plunger activate (the needle will be pushed into the thigh muscle to inject a dose of Twinject (Epinephrine)). The needle can go through clothes. Hold the pen against the thigh as you count to 10. After counting to 10, remove the device from your thigh. Seek medical attention immediately.

If the symptoms have not improved within about 10 minutes, administer a second dose. Prepare the second dose by unscrewing the rounded tip, pulling the syringe from the barrel and sliding the yellow collar off the plunger. Inject the dose by placing the needle into the thigh and pushing the plunger. It is important to know how to use the autoinjector. If you are not sure, ask your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist for a demonstration.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are using the medication without consulting your doctor.

Store Twinject (Epinephrine) at room temperature, protect it from light, and keep it out of the reach of children. The pen should be stored in its original tube. Do not use it if the solution is darker than light yellow or has particles in it.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Be sure to tell any emergency professionals if you have any of these conditions and that you have used Twinject (Epinephrine).
