Epipen Autoinjector is used to treat life threatening allergic reactions. Disney visitors can expect to find Epipens available at the end of 2014.
Anaphylaxis is a severe life threatening allergic reaction that is typically unpredictable and can progress quickly. Common triggers can be allergies to insect stings or certain foods, such as nuts. Quick access to epinephrine, the active medication in Epipens, is first line treatment. Quick and easy access to this medication can be lifesaving.
