Jext® is the medicine your child has been given by your doctor to help treat their anaphylaxis.
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 their body.
Your doctor should explain when and how to use Jext®. If your child feels like they are having an allergic reaction it is important that you use their Jext® immediately.
Early use of adrenaline means that they will recover more quickly and feel better faster. If they still feel poorly after using the Jext®, you can use another one after about 5-15 minutes.
Your doctor has given your child Jext® because their body reacted badly to something in the past, such as a type of food or an insect sting. In other words, they had an allergic reaction to something.
They may react again in the future to whatever it is that their body doesn’t like. There is also a chance that next time your child 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 child’s body. But don’t worry as you will learn later, Jext® is easy to use, and your child won’t see the needle going into their body.
It is encouraged that you and your child regularly test your knowledge about your Jext® so we’ve put a handy quiz together.
It’s important that your child’s school knows about their condition and allergy so that you and your child’s teachers can come with a plan on how to make sure they are safe at school.
