So you’ve been diagnosed with a severe allergy. Now what? Aside from avoiding your allergen to the best of your ability, staying prepared with an Anaphylaxis Action Plan is a great way to manage your condition.
An Anaphylaxis Action Plan is a written set of directions for you and those around you (or those taking care of your child) that details exactly what needs to be done in case of an allergic emergency. Your doctor will provide you the information you need, such as what you or your child is allergic to, the general signs of anaphylaxis, and when to give a SYMJEPI™ (epinephrine) Injection.
Completing an Anaphylaxis Action Plan worksheet to keep on file at the places you or your child visits the most (such as work, school, camp, or daycare) will help others recognize what is happening if an emergency occurs and react accordingly.
Think of the people you or your child is in close contact with on a daily basis. Those are the ones who should be aware of your Anaphylaxis Action Plan. They could include
Using the SYMJEPI app as part of your Anaphylaxis Action Plan is a great way to keep track of your SYMJEPI devices. Within the app, you’ll be able to name your devices, track where you keep them, and receive refill reminders. The SYMJEPI app also provides quick access to instructions for giving a SYMJEPI injection should an emergency happen when you or your child is not near someone who already knows what to do when a severe allergic reaction occurs.
SYMJEPI is indicated in the emergency treatment of allergic reactions (Type 1) including anaphylaxis to stinging insects (e.g., order Hymenoptera, which include bees, wasps, hornets, yellow jackets and fire ants) and biting insects (e.g., triatoma, mosquitoes), allergen immunotherapy, foods, drugs, diagnostic testing substances (e.g., radiocontrast media) and other allergens, as well as idiopathic anaphylaxis or exercise-induced anaphylaxis.
