It is called Epipen (epinephrine injection).

EpiPen injection is used to treat severe allergic reactions (e.g. difficulty breathing; rash; hives; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, lips, or tongue) caused by insect stings or bites, foods, drugs, or other causes. It is also used to treat exercise-induced anaphylaxis.

EpiPen Auto-Injectors may be kept on hand for self-injection by a person with a history of an severe allergic reaction.
