Why have I been given Jext®?

Your doctor has given you Jext® because your body reacted badly to something in the past, such as a type of food or an insect sting. In other words, you had an allergic reaction to something.

You may react again in the future to whatever it is that your body doesn’t like. There is also a chance that next time you might have a more severe allergic reaction called an anaphylactic reaction.

Jext® contains a liquid, which works quickly while you wait for the ambulance. This liquid is a medicine called adrenaline. Jext® automatically injects the adrenaline into your body. But don’t worry as you will learn later, Jext® is easy to use, and you won’t see the needle going into your body.
