23rd May 2012 - People who suffer from severe allergic reactions are being advised to see their GP as soon as possible if they use Anapen adrenaline injector pens. Some may be faulty and not deliver the right dose fast enough in the event of anaphylactic shock.

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has issued a class 2 alert to healthcare professionals after the product was withdrawn as a precaution by the manufacturer.

The MHRA says people who use the pens to treat anaphylactic shock should see their GP or allergy clinic as soon as possible to arrange alternative products.

Anapen is an adrenaline injector and has been recalled as a precaution by the licence holder Lincoln Medical Limited.

The MHRA says a potential problem with the speed and delivery of adrenaline by the Anapen injectors was found during development work by the manufacturer Owen Mumford Ltd.
