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.

We complain about the high cost of healthcare while our government looks the other way at unconscionable price-gouging by the pharmaceutical industry. People are already dying because they cannot afford their medicine -- and this is happening right here in the richest country in the world. How can we allow these soulless creatures to continue to put profit ahead of people?

I am on Medicare, a widow and have humana-walmart prescription plan because I don't have a major illness nor use tier 3 drugs. An epi-pen is now a tier 3 "drug."!!! There is a $500 deductible plus the epi pen costs $348 even without the deductible!! I am being penalized for being healthy!!! My doctor has to ask humana's "review panel" if I can be moved to tier 2 on this drug because I will never satisfy a deductible because I am not on tier 3 drugs. I have to get sick to even qualify for the deductible! I am allergic to shellfish, ciprofloxin and raspberries which cause me to need an epinephrine shot asap or my throat closes up and I can die. My 8 year old granddaughter is allergic to penicillin and needs this drug in emergencies. My son is 36 and is allergic to a form of penicillin. My 55 year old sister is allergic to penicillin and my daughter is allergic to a form of tetanus. I am working but barely make it each month and will be fully retired in one year. the EpiPen used to be $48 for two now it is at a minimum $348 + my $500 deductible because I don't use tier 3 prescription drugs. I am outraged for all the taxpayers in this country who expect more and not to be raped daily by the pharmaceutical companies. Every other major country in the world doesn't have this worry. It is not a free capitalist society when the middle class who are supporting it can't even get the medicines or medical care to cure themselves. I am outraged-outraged for the children whose parents can't afford it and for the seniors and our poor kids in their 30's and 40's trying to make ends meet. I will be happy to protest and call the media to air my complaint this week!!!

https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2017/04/19/shut-down-the-fda-start-over/ Veterans of the Armed Forces, take note: Kavanagh remarked that the drug pyridostigmine, given to US troops to prevent the later effects of nerve gas, “actually increased the lethality” of certain nerve agents. Kavanagh recalled being given records of safety data on a drug—and then his bosses told him which sections not to read. Obviously, they knew the drug was dangerous and they knew exactly where, in the reports, that fact would be revealed. The guillotine should be imported just for all the vile traitors at the FDA

Sharav: “FDA documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, revealed that the FDA has been concealing from the medical community and the public serious research misconduct; including fraud, deception, avoidable risks for human subjects — even deaths — that occurred in clinical trials [of medical drugs].”

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/drug-giant-aspen-plot-destroy-cancer-medicine-big-pharma-times-investigation-a7683521.html Big Pharma is as evil and corrupt as any government. "Leaked internal emails appear to show employees at one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies calling for “celebration” over price hikes of cancer drugs, an investigation has revealed. Staff at Aspen Pharmacare reportedly plotted to destroy stocks of life-saving medicines during a price dispute with the Spanish health service in 2014. After purchasing five different cancer drugs from British firm GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), the company tried to sell the medicines in Europe for up to 40 times their previous price"

I have 2 kids that need this medication each year. I just learned yesterday that I have to pay $510 out of pocket for a 2-pack (times 2). I hope the congress do something before the beginning of the school year. I usually order 4 packs with $25 co-pay. I don't mind paying double the co-pay of $25 as long as I know my kids have access to the medication that can save their lives in case of severe allergic reactions - at home, at school or when to go anywhere.

I have random anaphylactic reactions, and was therefore told that until they can figure out why this keeps happening to me, I have to have an epi-pen. However, I cannot afford the $640 that I was told it would cost. So, basically, I could die at the hands of this company's corrupt practices, which are being allowed because their company's leader has a daddy in the Senate who is protecting her (AND HIS) financial interests over the life and death situations of tax paying citizens with Anaphylaxsis. She should literally be put in jail for manslaughter if anyone has died because they couldn't afford this life saving drug.

This board is really being trolled by Paid Trash probably hired by Big Pharma. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-03-15/mea-gulpa-flint-official-dodges-jail-time-only-has-write-apology-letter This article is not about pharma, but it shows you how the bio and medical industry is full of protected traitor. A Michigan district court judge ordered that Corinne Miller, the former director of epidemiology at the state?s Department of Health and Human Services, publicly apologize to the residents of Flint for withholding information about the presence of the Legionella bacteria, the microbe that causes Legionnaires? disease, in the city?s drinking water. After pleading no contest to a charge of neglect, Miller also got a year?s probation and 300 hours of community service ? essentially a slap on the wrist. She is cooperating with special prosecutors pursuing cases against several former employees of the health department and the state?s Department of Environmental Quality for their role in Flint?s water crisis. Twelve Flint residents were confirmed to have died in 2014 and 2015 from Legionnaires? disease, an extreme type of pneumonia. But in January, statistics released by Genesee County, where Flint is located, appeared to confirm public health experts? suspicions that the city?s water in fact caused additional pneumonia deaths.

My heart goes out to all the parents and families who have lost a loved one to a food allergy , how horrible ! How horrible that insurance doesn't cover the epi-pen in full and it's so costly ! It's a medical necessity not a luxury item ! Every school every police car every ambulance should be equipped mandatory ! No one should have to die needlessly ! I know Georgina and hearing her story I can't imagine reliving that day how painful to think if only I had read it correct or if only I had used the epi pen but Giovanni didn't die in vain his mom is turning his tragic death into helping and saving lives ! God bless ! I'm a grandparent now and worry about giving my 2 yr old certain foods I tell my daughter just don't take chances and avoid them even if he isn't allergic I worry he might be
