When do you switch from EpiPen Jr to the Regular EpiPen?

I was hoping someone would be able to tell me at what weight they switched from using the Junior version of the EpiPen to the regular EpiPen. It's something I forgot to ask the doctor, and didn't seem to be a real issue since our son was no where near the age/weight to use the regular one. He is almost 35 pounds now and I have read somewhere that the junior epipen should be used for children under that.

Does anyone know what would happen to a child that took the adult epipen dose and it was too much for them? Is there such a thing as OverDosing on Epinephrine?

Or what if he's just 33 or 34 pounds and the Junior pen is not enough? Any suggestions/comments?
