Question

After using my Adrenaline Auto-injector what should I do?

Your Auto-injector is designed as emergency treatment. You should always get medical help immediately after using your Auto-injector. Dial 112, ask for an ambulance and state “anaphylaxis” even if symptoms appear to be improving.

You will need to go to hospital for observation and further treatment as required. This is because the reaction may happen again at some time later.

While waiting for the ambulance you should lie down with your feet raised unless this makes you breathless in which case you should sit up. Ask someone to stay with you until the ambulance arrives in case you feel unwell again.

Unconscious patients should be placed on their side in the recovery position.
