MyEpiPen® Patient Support Program

Australia’s 35,000-member EpiClub® program has been revamped and rebranded by Viatris (formerly Mylan) as the MyEpiPen® Patient Support Program.

Benefits for patients who join MyEpiPen® include:

  • Free EpiPen® trainer devices
  • Email and SMS reminder service for patients before their EpiPen® adrenaline (epinephrine) Auto-Injector devices expire.
  • ‘How to use’ cards to keep at home and share with others.
  • Video explainers in 26 languages that are appropriate for new patients and as refreshers for experienced patients.
  • Real-world patient videos in which parents and patients describe their experiences with using EpiPen® for first aid.
  • Evidence-based information to help people understand more about anaphylaxis and their EpiPen® Auto-Injectors.
  • Regular newsletters to keep patients up to date with relevant information.
  • Evidence-based information to help people understand more about anaphylaxis and their EpiPen® Auto-Injectors, with links to ASCIA anaphylaxis resources, such as the EpiPen® version of the ASCIA Action Plan for Anaphylaxis.
  • MyEpiPen® Welcome Kits which include the bag tag and wallet card that were developed by ASCIA after liaising with the team at Viatris.
