Important Features of AUVI-Q® (epinephrine injection, USP)

AUVI-Q® was Developed by Patients, for Patients® using Human Factors Engineering, incorporating real-world experience and feedback from people with life-threatening allergies and their caregivers.It is designed to be easy to use, and to help maximize the safe administration of epinephrine and minimize the potential for use-related errors during injection.

The first and only FDA-approved epinephrine auto-injector for infants and toddlers weighing 16.5 lbs to 33 lbs with life-threatening allergies. AUVI-Q® (epinephrine injection, USP) 0.1 mg is now available.  (It is not known if AUVI-Q® is safe and effective in children weighing less than 16.5 lbs.)

AUVI-Q® is about the size of a credit card and thickness of a cell phone and fits into most pockets, small purses, and diaper bags.  AUVI-Q® is small enough to fit in your child’s pocket or backpack for quick accessibility at school.

AUVI-Q® includes innovative features:

  • voice instructions to help guide users through the entire epinephrine injection
  • a 2-second countdown begins after AUVI-Q® is activated
  • after the injection is complete, AUVI-Q® will beep, and the lights will blink red

What our patients are saying...

After seeing their many ads I convinced Dad to "just have a hearing test." I wish he could use the computer himself to say how sorry he was to have waited so long to get help. This is a wonderful group, and it is easy to see that they truly care about us and enjoy what they do, which is help people hear again. Definitely recommend!

5-star Patient Review

I am now able to breathe normally at 100% for the first time in 12 years! On top of that, cosmetically my nose, after having to be re-broken during the procedure looks natural, like it looked before it broke in my accident 12 years ago! Highly recommend if you are having breathing issues due to your nose. You will indeed be a changed person. Staff is awesome, also extremely friendly and welcoming.

5-star Patient Review

I'm cured! Thanks, Dr. Weiss, Michelle, Lisa, and everyone else. I recovered quickly from surgery, and my allergies are clearing up. Feeling great!

5-star Patient Review

If you have any difficulty breathing through your nose or any difficulty with your nose in general, look no further than Dr. Weiss. Dr. Weiss did my surgery on October 5, 2016, which was not as big a deal as I anticipated. Now I can breathe like I've never been able to breathe before. It was the greatest sensation to be able to breathe through my nose. Thank you Dr Weiss for doing an excellent, fantastic, outstanding job.

5-star Patient Review

I am so grateful for this practice! For years and years, I suffered terribly from severe sinus infections brought on by every single little cold I'd catch. Dr. Weiss took the conservative approach with the balloon surgery to expand the access to and from the sinuses. This was painless and required no recovery time...It has been life changing. Dr. Weiss is a caring and skilled doctor to whom I'm grateful for giving me a much better quality of life. The practice, all of the staff members, are caring and fun, and I can't recommend it highly enough!
