Emerade is an emergency treatment for dealing with the symptoms of anaphylaxis – a severe and possibly life-threatening allergic reaction. It is an autoinjector pen which is administered to the patient’s thigh when the signs of a severe allergic reaction emerge. This medication is an alternative to both EpiPen and Jext.


What is Emerade?

Emerade is an adrenaline autoinjector used as an emergency treatment when someone experiences a severe and potentially life-threatening allergic reaction known as anaphylaxis.

The prefilled injector pen is prescribed so that it can be carried at all times by patients who are at risk of anaphylaxis. With this pen, the patient or someone nearby who knows how to use it can quickly respond when signs of anaphylaxis begin to show. The autoinjector is administered to the thigh of the patient. There are alternatives to Emerade called Jext and EpiPen which work in the same way to this particular medication.

How does Emerade work?

Emerade contains a sterile solution of adrenaline which, when injected into a patient, counteracts the fall of blood pressure that occurs during an anaphylactic reaction. It also stimulates the heart and facilitates breathing.

This medication is used exclusively in emergency situations, when a patient experiences anaphylaxis which may be caused by allergens in foods, medicines, insect stings or bites as well as exercise or other allergens.

How do I use Emerade?

If you or someone you know needs to use Emerade, you will need to first prepare the pen for injection before pressing it against the outer side of the thigh. It is worth learning how to do this in advance, though if you haven’t done it before, there are instructions on the pen itself you can check. Once an Emerade pen has been used, it is emptied and cannot be used again.

The injection can be administered through clothing. The needle in this medication is protected before, during and after the injection. When the injection is finished, the plunger should be visible in the inspection window by lifting the label. Depending on the severity of the allergic reaction, a single Emerade injection may not be sufficient and a second one may need to be administered. If symptoms have not improved or have deteriorated within 5-15 minutes after the first injection, then apply a second injection.

What happens just after using Emerade?

When someone experiences an anaphylactic shock, they will have trouble moving even when Emerade has just been used for treatment. If you are with someone who experiences a severe allergic reaction, it’s important to get this person in a comfortable position. After they receive their auto-injection, the patient should life flat on their back, unless they are having trouble breathing in which case they should sit up.

Pregnant women who experience anaphylaxis should lie on their left side, so that they don’t risk putting too much pressure on the large vein that leads to the heart. If the patient falls unconscious as a result of anaphylaxis, they will need to be placed in the recovery position.

After injecting Emerade, the effects of an anaphylactic shock should subside in a small amount of time. When they are reduced to the point they are no longer life-threatening, the patient should go to hospital for observation. This trip to the hospital can last 6-12 hours and is necessary since the symptoms of anaphylaxis can possibly return not long after the initial shock.

What are the side effects of Emerade?

Numerous side effects are possible when using Emerade auto injector pens, although not everyone experiences any. If you do experience any side effects from using this treatment, it is best to inform your doctor or pharmacist about them. The following has been reported previously by users of medication like Emerade and similar alternatives:

  • Heart issues like an irregular or rapid heartbeat or chest pain
  • High blood pressure and narrowing of the blood vessels
  • Sweating
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Headache and dizziness
  • Weakness and shaking
  • Anxiety and hallucinations
  • Fainting
  • Changes in your blood values such as increased blood sugar, decreased potassium and increased acid

Can I use Emerade?

Emerade can be used by adults and children who are at risk of experiencing an anaphylactic shock due to certain triggers. However, only children weighing 15kg or more are recommended this treatment, because a dose with sufficient accuracy can’t be administered to those that weigh less.

While Emerade is designed for emergencies, there are certain health conditions which someone may have which may make this treatment unsuitable to use. You should talk to your doctor before using Emerade if you have any of the following conditions:

  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • An overactive thyroid
  • Diabetes
  • High calcium levels or low potassium levels in your blood
  • A tumour on the adrenal gland
  • Increased pressure in the eye
  • Reduced kidney function
  • Prostate disease
  • Allergic (hypersensitive) to sodium metabisulphite

You should also make your doctor aware if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicine, since certain ones can influence the effects of adrenaline in Emerade. These medicines in particular can affect Emerade and so your doctor should be aware of their use:

  • Antidepressants like monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAO inhibitors) or tricyclic antidepressants
  • Medicines for treating Parkinson’s disease like Catechol-O-Methyl Transferase inhibitors (COMT inhibitors)
  • Medicines for heart disease or medicines that treat disorders of the nervous system called alpha and beta blocking medicines
  • Medicines that may make the heart sensitive to uneven beat (arrhythmias) like digitalis and quinidine

What if I use too much Emerade?

If you take too much of this medication or accidently inject it into a blood vessel or into a hand, you should seek medical help immediately. An overdose or injecting in the wrong place can cause your blood pressure to rise sharply, an irregular heartbeat and accumulation of fluid in the lungs which can make cause breathing difficulties.
