Research has shown that 32% of EpiPen patients fail to replace their adrenaline auto-injectors (AAI) before the expiry date. This means that almost 1 in 3 patients are carrying an out of date auto-injector.
We would recommend that all patients who have an EpiPen should register for the Expiry Alert service. You will then receive a message four weeks before the expiry date, either by email or by mobile phone to remind you to request a new prescription.
This website also contains useful information for patients and frequently asked questions about EpiPens.
