Could Racemic Epinephrine be used as Epinephrine to Treat Anaphylaxis?

Question asked by brian anderson on Oct 23, 2019

If one was in an absolute survival emergency with an anaphylactic attack, could one use the racepinephrine as the active ingredient in asthmanefrin, combine 1.3ml of that solution (at 22.5mg/ml) into a simple 30ml water/sodium chloride injectable solution (with 1.3ml removed). To arrive at an injectable (.3ml) "Epi-pen" at .1%, which would work to counter the anaphylaxis?

Bottom line, is racepinephrine compatible as an emergency replacement for epinephrine to combat anaphylaxis?

Thanks for your help!
