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.

This is basic human safety device that can prevent death or severe health reactions. It should be available on supermarket shelves, cheap and available to everyone quickly! Just like Benadryl!

Cervical Dystonia , Thanks to a person that was not paying attention rear ended at 45 miles plus. I was in a work truck 1999 f150 the person that hit me was in a Chevy suburban. ''Totaled the Ford'' I hit the car in front of me and he hit the car in front of him. I was work comp number of the time Told it was in my head, I was holding on to the pain. Years of just being miserable I seen a Doc he diagnose me with Cervical Dystonia I was living a normal life as best I can with the help of pain meds did what was asked of me by my doctor drug test pill count not a problem for me 8 yrs +. Hospital closes have to find new doc. New Doc cuts my meds 60% remind you I'm not taking a lot of meds to begin with. New doc says we need new MRI I try to explain I had at the time of the accident plus a CT scan. I do the MRI says you have arthritis of a 80 yr old man, did not know I was dealing with that also.I'm 30 yrs old at the time of the accident 43 yrs now. I'm taking you off your meds your option do surgery or go on disability give up my life. I had one of three and now it did not go so well I have more pain and new pain in my right arm. Dystonia runs in my Family but I can not tell the new Doc that or anything. I should have a say as to what treatments I feel in my best interest. I hope my pain in my right arm subsides... I cant even imagine someone that is in worst shape then me... and your still alive ? you are my HERO. I hope they stop killing people that want to live a normal life and not have to deal with nipping dog of pain. The crazy part is I live in a state that 5min from house have 10 weed shops to buy from. Remember WEED is the gateway drug. Yet the DEA and CDC are not kicking down their doors. The hardest part about this I knew it was coming and that I would be asked to give up my life.

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.
