Active ingredient(s): adrenaline (epinephrine)


Consumer Medicine Information (CMI)

This leaflet provides important information about using ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS. You should also speak to your doctor or pharmacist if you would like further information or if you have any concerns or questions about using ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS.

Where to find information in this leaflet:

1. Why am I using ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS?

ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS contains the active ingredient adrenaline (epinephrine).

ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS is only to be used for the immediate EMERGENCY TREATMENT of a SEVERE ALLERGIC REACTION (also known as ANAPHYLAXIS). Your doctor or pharmacist will explain what this is like, so that you know when you must use ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS.

ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS is used to treat children who have a severe allergic reaction caused by, for example, hypersensitivity to

  • food
  • medicines
  • stinging insects
  • insect bites
  • latex or
  • other allergens, possibly unidentified.

See Section 6. Are there any side effects? for information regarding allergy to sodium metabisulfite.

Avoidance of known allergens is most important in preventing severe allergic reactions.

A severe allergic reaction, otherwise known as anaphylaxis, is overwhelming and life-threatening.

It affects the whole body, in particular the

  • heart and blood circulation.

This may cause, for example, low blood pressure and collapse, or abnormal heart beat or function.

  • air passages and lungs.

This causes difficulty in breathing, with noisy wheezing or gasping, possibly with sneezing and a very runny nose.

  • stomach and bowels.

This may cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and abdominal cramps, often severe.

  • skin (very common).

This causes flushing, itching, skin rash, hives or swelling, which may be widespread or in one part of the body.

  • brain.

There may be fits or confusion due to lack of oxygen.

Usually several parts of the body are affected. The patient feels extremely unwell.

It is important to act quickly to treat a severe allergic reaction.

The adrenaline in ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS treats allergic emergencies. It

  • shrinks abnormally wide blood vessels and
  • makes the heart beat strongly.

This helps improve the very low blood pressure and poor circulation that occur in a severe allergic reaction.

Adrenaline also

  • relaxes the lungs. This eases breathing and lessens wheezing.
  • helps stop
    • swelling, for example, of the face and lips
    • skin rash and/or
    • itching.

The ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector is intended for use in children who have been assessed and advised by their doctor or pharmacist as needing an ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector to treat their severe allergic reaction and who

  • weigh 15 kg to 30 kg, and
  • are having a severe allergic reaction.

Note: Selection of the appropriate dosage is determined according to patient body weight.

For a child who weighs from 15 kg up to 30 kg, the doctor or pharmacist may assess their severe allergic reaction as needing the larger dosage of adrenaline as provided by an ADRENALINE VIATRIS Auto-Injector. (The ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector delivers a smaller dosage of adrenaline). Similarly, there may be instances where the doctor or pharmacist will recommend the use of ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS. in some adults, based on careful medical assessment.

If you have any questions about this, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS

  • provides convenient first-aid
  • may be self-administered or administered by a carer to the child
  • has a spring-activated, hidden needle
  • automatically injects one pre-measured dose of adrenaline
  • is for single use only.

ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS may be prescribed by your doctor. You can also purchase it directly from a pharmacy.

2. What should I know before I use ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS?

The ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector is simple to use. Please read and follow the step-by-step instructions.

Do not remove the blue safety release until you need to use ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS and are ready to use it. The safety release stops ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector from “firing” or working.

There is no visible needle. This helps overcome fear of injection. The hidden needle is very fine so that the injection does not usually hurt.

Warnings

ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS is a life-saving treatment in the emergency management of severe allergic reactions. Therefore, it should not be withheld from anyone who is considered to need it.

The ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector has a clear “viewing window” so you can see the contents.

Do not use ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS if the contents:

  • are cloudy or
  • are coloured or
  • contain sediment or
  • if the “viewing window” is obscured.

These changes indicate that the effectiveness of the drug product may be decreased.

When the “viewing window” is obscured, the auto-injector has already “fired” and cannot be used again.

Check your ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector regularly (see Things you should do in Section 5. What should I know while using ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS?).

Do not use ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS

  • after the expiry date on the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector and carton or
  • if the packaging is torn, doesn’t look quite right or shows signs of tampering.

If the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS packaging is damaged or it is past the expiry date, return it to your pharmacist for disposal.

Help in using ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS

See also Section 1. Why am I using ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS?

When to use ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS

Use ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS immediately if your child has signs and symptoms of a severe allergic reaction, as described by your doctor or pharmacist. Symptoms do vary. However, the symptoms are likely to include:

  • collapse
  • difficulty in breathing
  • wheezing
  • swelling, especially of the face, lips, tongue or throat
  • flushing of the face
  • irregular or faint pulse
  • vomiting, diarrhoea, stomach cramps

  • itching.

How to use ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS

General
  • Grip only the mid-section of the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector. Avoid touching either end, except when you remove the blue safety release. The blue safety release stops the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS from “firing” or working.
  • Never place thumb, fingers or hand over the orange end as this contains the needle.
  • Always point the orange end (which holds the needle) away from any part of any body, except the planned injection site. This is usually the thigh of the child who has the severe allergic reaction.
  • Always hold the leg firmly during injection especially in children who are uncooperative and kick or move during an injection. This will reduce the risk of injection related injuries.
  • Keep ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS away from the face and eyes.
  • Never inject ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS into the buttock.

Carefully follow the step-by-step directions to make the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS work properly.

Step 1

Flip open the green cap on the protective carry tube. Carefully tip and slide the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector out of the carry tube. Never place thumb, fingers or hand over the orange end as this contains the needle. Check the contents of the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector through the “viewing window”. Make sure the solution is clear, colourless and sediment-free. If the “viewing window” is obscured, the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector has already “fired” and cannot be used again.

Step 2

Make a fist around the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector, with your thumb nearest to the blue safety release (see FIGURE 1).

image1.png

FIGURE 1

Step 3

Activate the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector by removing the blue safety release with your other hand (also shown in FIGURE 1). This “triggers” the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS. It is now ready to

  • “fire” the needle and
  • inject the medicine through the needle into the child's thigh muscle.

After you remove the blue safety release do not touch or place thumb, fingers or hand over the orange end as this contains the needle.

Step 4

Hold the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector at a 90° angle (right angle) to the outer part of the thigh. Hold the orange end about 5cm away from the thigh (see FIGURE 2).

image2.png

FIGURE 2

Step 5

Hold the child’s leg firmly, especially if they are uncooperative or may kick or move during the injection.

Push the orange end FIRMLY into the child's outer mid-thigh until a “click” is heard or felt. Keep pressing the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector firmly against the thigh for approximately 3 seconds (see FIGURE 3).

NOTE: ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS may be used either

  • • through clothing, as shown in FIGURE 3, or
  • • directly on to skin.

When you press the orange end of the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector firmly against the thigh, the hidden needle “fires”. It injects the measured dose of adrenaline into the child's thigh muscle.

Step 6

Carefully take the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector away from the thigh.

The orange needle cover will extend to cover the needle (see FIGURE 4).

image4.png

FIGURE 4

Check the “viewing window” - it should now be obscured. If it isn’t, the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS has not “fired” or worked. If the “viewing window” is not obscured, repeat steps 2-6 above.

Step 7

Record the time ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS was given.

Step 8

Seek further medical attention for your child immediately. Although the child has received adrenaline from ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS, he/she may need more medical treatment.

Either

  • Contact your doctor or
  • Call an ambulance (telephone 000 in Australia or 111 in New Zealand). State that adrenaline treatment may be needed.
Step 9

With severe, persistent allergic reactions, repeat injections with an additional ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS may be necessary. The ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS dose may be repeated every 5 to 15 minutes if symptoms recur or have not subsided.

Do not inject more than two sequential doses of ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS unless under medical supervision.

Step 10

Explain to the doctor that your child has had ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS (intramuscular adrenaline).

Take your used ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector with you.

To avoid injury, follow the used ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS disposal instructions below (see When to discard your medicine (as relevant) in Section 5. What should I know while using ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS?).

Additional information about treatment of insect sting allergy

Use ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS immediately if you or your child have been stung or bitten by the insect and experience the signs and symptoms as described by your doctor or pharmacist.

If the insect’s sting is easily accessible, remove the sting with your fingernails. Do not squeeze, pinch or push the sting deeper into the skin. If available, ice packs or sodium bicarbonate soaks may then be applied to the stung area.

Keep warm, calm, and as still as possible.

If you use too much ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS

Because each ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector contains only one dose, overdosage is unlikely. Overdosage may lead to a rise in blood pressure. This may cause bleeding in the brain or fluid in the lung.

If you think that you have used too much ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS, you may need urgent medical attention.

You should immediately:

  • phone the Poisons Information Centre
    (Australia telephone 13 11 26), or
  • contact your doctor, or
  • go to the Emergency Department at your nearest hospital.

You should do this even if there are no signs of discomfort or poisoning.

5. What should I know while using ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS?

Things you should do

Check what the expiry date is on your ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector.

Mark this expiry date on your calendar or diary.

Replace your ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector prior to this expiry date.

Also note on your calendar or diary to check the contents of your ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector each month. Do this through the “viewing window”.

Make sure the solution is clear, colourless and sediment-free. If not, obtain a new ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector immediately.

If the “viewing window” is obscured this means the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector has already “fired” or worked. It cannot be used again. Return it to your doctor or pharmacist for disposal. Obtain a new ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector immediately.

The ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector can be damaged and made unusable if it is mishandled.

ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS is NOT a toy. Keep it out of reach of children.

Things you should not do

Do not use ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS

  • to treat any other medical conditions including other types of shock unless your doctor tells you to.
  • if the solution is brown or contains any particles or cloudiness.
  • in a child who weighs more than 30 kg unless advised by your doctor or pharmacist. ADRENALINE VIATRIS is generally recommended for any adult or child who weighs more than 30 kg.
  • in a child who weighs less than 15 kg. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if this is the case so that a careful assessment can be made and the appropriate dose selected based on the individual’s weight and the life-threatening nature of the reaction(s) for which ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS is being prescribed.

Do not take off the blue safety release until you need to use ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS and are ready to use it.

Remember that the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector is activated (“triggered”, ready to “fire”) as soon as you take off the blue safety release.

Do not touch the orange end on any person or object while you are taking off the blue safety release and/or after you have taken off the blue safety release.

The orange end holds the hidden needle, ready to “fire” and inject the adrenaline.

After you take off the blue safety release

  • Do not “click” on either end of the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector. The ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector does not work like a retractable ball-point pen (see How to use ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS - Step 3 in Section 4. How do I use ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS?).
  • Do not bump the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector until you intentionally push the orange end firmly into the child's thigh (see How to use ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS - Step 4 in Section 4. How do I use ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS?).

This will help prevent accidental activation of the ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS Auto-Injector prior to use.

Do not inject into hands, feet, ears, nose, buttocks, genital area or into a blood vessel.

If this does happen accidentally you must immediately seek medical attention.

Do not inject into the buttock.

Rare cases of serious skin infections have been reported following injection into the buttock. If you develop signs or symptoms of infection, such as persistent redness, warmth, swelling, or tenderness, at the adrenaline injection site you must seek medical attention immediately.

Driving or using machines

Your ability to drive and use machines may be affected by the anaphylactic reaction and possible adverse effects to adrenaline.

Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you notice anything else that may be making you feel unwell.

Other side effects not listed here may occur in some people.

Accidental injection into the hands, fingers or feet may result in the following:

  • fast or noticeable heart beat
  • pale skin colour at the site of accidental injection
  • feeling of coldness at the site of accidental injection
  • bruising or discolouration at the site of accidental injection
  • bleeding

If an accidental injection occurs at one of these areas, seek medical attention immediately

Injection related injuries, such as needle cuts and bent needles, have been reported in people who are uncooperative and kick or move during the injection.

Rare cases of serious skin infections have been reported following injection into the buttock.

Sodium metabisulfite

ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS contains a very small quantity of sodium metabisulfite as a preservative. In people who are allergic to sodium metabisulfite, this could cause, for example, severe allergic reactions (hypersensitivity) or breathing difficulty (bronchospasm) in certain groups of people, especially those with history of asthma. However, the active ingredient, adrenaline, in ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS is expected to overcome any allergic reaction to sodium metabisulfite. In an emergency, the risk of exposure to the very small amount of sodium metabisulfite is generally outweighed by the benefits of ADRENALINE JR VIATRIS.

Reporting side effects

After you have received medical advice for any side effects you experience, you can report side effects to the Therapeutic Goods Administration online at www.tga.gov.au/reporting-problems. By reporting side effects, you can help provide more information on the safety of this medicine.

Always make sure you speak to your doctor or pharmacist before you decide to stop taking any of your medicines.
