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 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

Pricing life-saving medication at exorbitant rates is completely immoral. Medicine is meant to heal, not line pockets. Epipens should be affordable for all.
