Supply update - EpiPen® Jr 

Mylan Australia has advised that there is sufficient supply of EpiPen® Jr 150 microgram adrenaline (epinephrine) autoinjectors at wholesalers and at Mylan’s warehouse to meet current patient needs in Australia.

Orders from wholesalers and pharmacies are being filled as they are received. As a result, EpiPen® Jr has been removed from the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) Medicines Shortage Information Initiative website. Mylan Australia’s dedicated, toll-free EpiPen Customer Service hotline 1800 931 625 remains up and running for any enquiries.
