Shelf Life of an Allergy Auto-Injector May Increase to 2 Years

That once a supplemental application is made, the agency targets to have it reviewed in four months.

In the meantime, Brown stresses the importance of making sure your auto-injectors are up to date. “I would never suggest someone carry an expired device,” she says. She recommends always refilling your devices before expiry, and keeping in mind that school nurses or other health-care providers might not administer a device if it has expired.

However, if someone is having a reaction and the only auto-injector that’s available has expired, Brown says to use it. She points to a case in 2013 where a college freshman died from an anaphylactic reaction to a cookie. The mother had an expired device on hand, but she got instructions over the phone from first responders not to use it.

Brown says that while the effect of degradation of epinephrine on health is unknown, “when you are talking about a life-threatening reaction and no alternative options, you are weighing that unknown and likely small risk against the greater risk of not treating.”

There are some locations like that, but only if you are willing to do a 2-3 hour drive to get there, with another 2-3 hour drive to get back.

Highway 20 (North Cascades Highway) to Winthrop is a lovely drive for example, and the drive to
