Epinephrine is a prescription medications used to treat life-threatening allergic reactions in adults and children. Epinephrine  belongs to a group of drugs called sympathomimetic agents. They relax muscles in the airways and tighten the blood vessels, reversing severely low blood pressure and symptoms of allergic reaction.

This medication comes in an injectable form and is injected in the thigh during a serious allergic reaction.

Common side effects of epinephrine include fast and irregular heartbeat, sweating, and nausea. 

Seek emergency medical attention, even after epinephrine use, to treat severe allergic reactions.
