Epinephrine is the first-line treatment for anaphylaxis, a severe allergic reaction that is rapid in onset and is potentially life-threatening. Because food allergy reactions can vary in severity and are unpredictable, it is critically important to carry two epinephrine auto-injectors at all times in order to have quick access to this life-saving medication.
