Hey all. This is my first post in the Pharma section, and I know that the topic of what I’m asking really doesn’t belong here, but I’m desperate.
Backstory: I live in a dangerous home situation where my physical liberty and personal safety is at stake every single day. There is no rhyme or reason to this, my severely autistic brother is prone to severely violent outbursts and unfortunately happens to be much stronger than Eddie Hall. When he was 11, he threw 500 pounds of manpower off him without so much as breaking a sweat. Now, he’s 23, my height (5’9”) and he outweighs me by 120 pounds. I’m as strong and fit as any well-trained man and probably stronger than most, but dealing with him is just impossible because once he has you, there’s no escaping him until you severely hurt him. Case in point, I have to carry bear spray.
My question - how well would injectable epinephrine work for keeping myself and my family safe in the event of another one of these outbursts, and what dosage would I have to take? I’m otherwise completely drug-free, and wouldn’t be looking to use it on a daily basis. It would be for emergency purposes only (for example, I’m in the car and my brother flips out and attacks my dad while he’s driving on the highway - this has happened before). I’m not asking for sources, I have those already. I just can’t really find information on this topic elsewhere.
