This website has been developed and funded by ALK and is intended for children who have been prescribed Jext ®, their parents and carers.

How to use video

It’s important that you learn how to use Jext® because you must use it as soon as you have any symptoms of an anaphylactic reaction.

Administering Jext® is not hard, but it may not seem easy during an anaphylactic reaction because you might feel a bit frightened. However, if you learn properly how to use Jext®, this won’t be a problem and you will feel better about using your Jext®.

By practising with a Jext® Trainer whilst watching the demonstration video, you and your family and friends can feel confident in using a real Jext® in an emergency.

Expiry Alert Service

Your Jext® has an expiry date and you can register with the free ALK Expiry Alert Service to receive alerts warning you when your Jext® is due to expire and needs to be replaced by your GP.

We will send through notifications by either SMS or email, or both, notifying you when your Jext® is due to expire. When your Jext® expires, visit your GP to dispose of the expired Jext® and collect a replacement.

Alerts will be sent:

4 Weeks

4 weeks before your Jext® expires

2 Weeks

2 weeks before your Jext® expires

Day after

The day after your Jext® expires

Jext® for schools

It is important that you are fully aware of your allergy. Spend time learning about your allergy and discussing ways in which you can minimise risks when you are not at home. If your Jext® is kept at school, make sure the expiry date is registered with the expiry alert service and you know what to do in an emergency with the person in charge.

Carry two Jext® pens

It is recommended you carry two Jext® pens with you at all times. Early use of Jext® improves the outcome and recovery from anaphylaxis, but if symptoms don’t improve or the symptoms get worse, a second Jext® can be used after about 5-15 minutes.
