Product information

Emerade is an adrenaline pen used in the event of anaphylaxis, which is a severe life-threatening allergic reaction. It is an intramuscular injection administered to the thigh, and works by preventing the rapid drop in blood pressure associated with anaphylaxis. Marketed by Bausch and Lomb, Emerade is an alternative to EpiPen and Jext available to buy online from our UK pharmacy.

There are several different types of allergy, and these can vary in severity. Some people with allergies such as hay fever may develop uncomfortable symptoms, such as a headache or a stuffy nose. Other allergic conditions, such as contact dermatitis, may cause skin irritation.

However, severe allergic reactions can cause systemic symptoms and will require medical attention. When these occur, someone’s blood pressure may fall steeply, and they may have swelling of the skin, tongue or lips, hives, difficulty breathing, flushing and loss of consciousness. In some cases, this reaction can be fatal.

There are several different triggers which have the capacity to cause a severe allergic reaction. For some, nuts might be a trigger. For others it might be shellfish. Wasp stings are also a possible cause.

People with severe allergies should take every precaution possible to avoid coming into contact with these triggers. However, sometimes a person may come into contact with these triggers by accident, so being prepared should the unexpected occur is vital.

Emerade contains adrenaline and is used to treat severe allergic reactions. In anaphylaxis, the immune system mistakes the presence of an allergen as a threat, and releases chemicals which lead to the above symptoms, and cause blood pressure to fall. When administered, the active ingredient in Emerade prevents blood vessels from dilating further, and helps to restore bodily functions to normal.

Some instances of anaphylactic shock may require the administration of two pens. As such, it is recommended to have access to two pens at all times. When symptoms do not improve or begin to get worse with 15 minutes, then a second pen may need to be used. Following administration, emergency medical attention should be sought immediately.

If you have been told by a doctor or nurse to carry an adrenaline pen with you, our pharmacy provides a service where you can buy Emerade online. To start your consultation, take our questionnaire. Once complete, our doctor will review your answers, and issue a prescription if suitable. Treatments are dispensed at our UK pharmacy, before being shipped by next day courier.

Please note: the 500mcg injection is only available to those who have been advised to take this dose specifically, or needed to use two pens in the past to treat a single reaction.
