The FDA Says There's An EpiPen Shortage

FDA reports shortage of EpiPens, citing 'manufacturing delays'

Reports of EpiPen shortages in parts of the US have circulated recently after a Food Allergy Research and Education Group survey found hundreds of people in 45 states had trouble filling the prescription.

"Mylan and Pfizer take the supply of EpiPen and EpiPen Jr Auto-Injectors very seriously", Mylan said in a statement this week.

Currently, Auvi-Q 0.1mg, 0.15mg, and 0.3mg strength auto-injectors, manufactured by kaleo, Inc. and also indicated for the treatment of anaphylaxis, are available as per the FDA notice. The products are used to counter severe allergic reactions, including to peanut and other food allergies.


In a statement released Wednesday, Mylan said it is now receiving continual supply from its manufacturing partner and is expediting shipments to wholesales upon receipt.

Mylan, the company that makes the devices, stressed that the product remains available although there are "intermittent supply constraints".

Patients who are having issues finding the product were advised to call Mylan Customer Relations at 800-796-9526 for assistance.
