Stop the Epipen Price Gouging

Investigate Mylan's 420% price increase on life-saving Epipen

We ask that there be an investigation and regulation into the 420% (adjusted for inflation!) increase in the price of Epipens since 2004.

Millions of people with severe allergies carry EpiPens to reverse life-threatening allergic reactions.

With this oppressive price increase, many EMT's and families are turning to manual syringes as a cheaper alternative, though doctors and patient advocates warn that it?s more complicated to get the correct dose of epinephrine and it administer safely with a syringe. Some families will be forced to hang on to expired Epipens, or worse, go without entirely.

There is no discernible reason for the increase other than Mylan's desire to use their monopoly to exploit the need for this life-saving medication for exorbitant profit.

Thank you.

NOT JUST FOR Epipens!!! ALL MEDICAL/HOSPITAL/PHARMA price gouging!!! With the government now helping w/medical INSURANCE FOR ALL THAT NEED IT--KUDOS to our newly enlightened Government for the coverage!!!---I can't believe this price gouging cannot be a real concern for our Government as well. I would like to also add the same can be said of the Dental Care Industry of America. Millions & millions of Americans are denied dental care because of lack of monies &/or insurance. Lets have America take care of Americans. Americans taking care of Americans what a concept...not a new one, just good old common sense & good Christian morality. Or just plain decency.

My son is a young adult with a food allergy whose employer's health insurance plan doesn't cover enough of the cost of an Epipen to make it affordable for him to buy one. This is a lifesaving medication that should be easily accessible to those in need.
