Hi everyone. I am in confusion on when to use my epi pen. My allergist nurse says to use it when ever I get any swelling my my throat, tongue, or face at all. I've used it 3 times in the past 5 weeks and the ER said to only take it if it is major swelling or of my oxygen levels are super low (I have a pulse ox). I am set off by pollen. My tongue may feel a little bigger and my throats will get a bit swollen and my face will get a bit puffy, but my oxygen levels are fine. An example, by neighbor just started mowing and my tongue and throats feel a bit tight, though my oxygen level is 95-99.
When should I use the epi?
