Stop the Epipen Price Gouging

Messages Sent So Far
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.

I am High school teacher and coach and my insurance does not cover epipens at all. My 4 year old daughter requires an epipen for fire ant bites which are a very considerable problem in Texas especially since we live close to water. If she has a reaction, she needs an epipen immediately. Epipens cost $700 plus for us and I already work fulltime plus 2 part time jobs. I have to pick up extra work in order to pay for more epipens when she needs them. Many of my students and players also require epipens. The pharmaceutical companies have put a tremendous financial burden on the lower and middle class families because of their price gouging. Something needs to be Done!
