Auvi-Q Auto-injector For Life Threatening Allergic Reactions

There are several reasons for people with allergies to carry an Auvi-Q Auto-injector with them at all times to treat a life-threatening anaphylactic reaction, including insect stings/bites, certain foods or drugs, or as a result of exercise. Whether it is yourself or a child/adult you are responsible for, Auvi-Q Auto-injector (also called Allerject in Canada) is a temporary solution to stop or prevent anaphylaxis until you can seek medical assistance as it is fast-acting but not long-lasting.

How The Active Ingredient Works

Auvi-Q Auto-injector is an Epinephrine Injection with a retractable needle that is administered into your thigh. Epinephrine resembles your body’s own adrenaline and works on both alpha-adrenergic and beta-adrenergic receptors. Once injected, the Auvi-Q Auto-injector releases a pre-measured dose of Epinephrine that causes a decrease in vasodilation and vascular permeability to avoid a drop in your blood pressure. It will also relax the smooth muscles in your airways so your breathing is not affected and any itching or hives is also reduced with Auvi-Q Auto-injector.

Information About Anaphylaxis

Anaphylaxis can happen when you come into contact with an allergen that triggers a release of chemicals that are meant to drive the allergen out, but this sudden influx of these chemical substances that has been set into motion can create a life-threatening reaction that can affect multiple body systems, including to your skin, the upper and lower respiratory system, your heart, and blood vessels. Swelling of your airways is the most dangerous symptom of anaphylaxis, as well as a drop in your blood pressure, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and panic. Auvi-Q Auto-injector is easy, fast, and will prevent the symptoms from starting or worsening.

Before You Use Auvi-Q Auto-injector

Ask your doctor if Auvi-Q Auto-injector is safe to use if you are pregnant, trying to conceive, or are breast feeding. Discuss your medical history with your doctor and list all OTC and Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements, to be certain Auvi-Q Auto-injector is right for you. If you are a caregiver, parent, or the one that requires the Epinephrine Injection, your doctor or pharmacist can demonstrate how easy this device is to use with its retractable needle and pre-measured dosage.

Proper Use of Auvi-Q Auto-injector

Auvi-Q Auto-injector is to be administered into your thigh only and, if necessary, through clothing. Never share this, or any other medication, with anyone else as you are not familiar with their medical history. Keep Auvi-Q Auto-injector close at hand for emergencies, and always seek proper medical care as soon as possible after the injection. When injecting a child, they must be held steady to avoid moving around before administering the Epinephrine Injection.
