EpiPen Expiration Extended

The FDA will be extending the expiration date of some lots of EpiPens and authorized generic versions by 4 months to mitigate the national shortage, the agency announced on Tuesday. The extension applies to the 0.3-mg dose of the epinephrine auto-injectors which are made by Pfizer for Mylan, and does not include EpiPen Jr.

A list of the affected lots, which have expiration dates from April 2018 to December 2018, can be seen in the FDA drug shortages article here
