Health Tip: Caring for Your Epi-Pen

(HealthDay News) -- An epi-pen may be a lifesaving injection for a person with severe allergies. But the device must be cared for and stored properly.

Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) suggests how to care for your epi-pen:

  • Store it away from direct light.
  • Store it at room temperature.
  • Do not refrigerate it or allow it to freeze.
  • Do not store it in a car, since temperatures can fluctuate drastically.
  • Check your epi solution periodically. If it becomes pinkish or darker than a slight yellow, it may be less effective.
