Be Aware of Differences Between Symjepi and Epinephrine Auto-Injectors
Symjepi (sim-JEH-pee) will compete with epinephrine auto-injectors (EpiPen, Auvi-Q, etc) for severe allergic reactions.
Symjepi contains the same medication...and will come in 0.3 mg and 0.15 mg strengths.
The big difference is that Symjepi is a prefilled syringe...NOT an auto-injector. This means an exposed needle will be seen before Symjepi is injected, and it must be manually inserted into the middle outer thigh...unlike the auto-injectors.
