SAFETY ALERT- Epinephrine Labeling Changes- Removal of Ratios (no change in the drug product, just labeling)
This is a reminder of a change that was made in June of 2017 but is beginning to be seen in the field now.
Please remind your providers that this change has occurred. 

 

  See below (June 2017 was when the FDA announced the change), but the new labeling should be circulating through the hospital’s stock. Some hospitals still report having both versions in stock. Eventually, the ratios will cycle out.
