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.

It is not right to make us pay more at the expense of an emergency that could save our lives

http://www.healthnutnews.com/pharma-giants-vaccines-glass-refuse-recall/ Big Pharma parasite "Sonofi" thinks it has the right to inject glass laden vaccines into Peoples veins, When is enough, ENOUGH, and when do The People get to inject Glass into the Vein's of these greedy bastards?

epinehrine(adrenaline) used to be cheap. The injector has not changed much so the drug is cheap, the injector is not much different, but the price is increased. NO new research, = no excessive price. It is crazy.

http://www.syfy.com/incorporated/timelines/history-of-the-future-2016-2074 If you look at the above "sci-fi" show, and the fact that Mylan corporation and it's demonically greedy CEO Heather Bresch, are allowed to put millions of lives at risk for profit. Then you can see a perfect analogy between what Corporations are allowed to get away with, and how it will only get worse in the future, with The American People continuing to be the Victimized Losers in a satanic U.S. Corporatocracy

This is Crazy. My sister just messaged me saying she is spending $400 this month on epi pens and she is asking for them for Xmas gifts because hers are expiring! Come on Congress.... Mylan should be ashamed.

Isn't it awful that a government that is set up to protect its people have to sign petitions for such ridiculousness? Get out of big pharma's pockets and represent the PEOPLE.

My family is preparing for an new year with inaccessible health care and pharmaceutical prices. The price gouging happening with life saving devices such as the EpiPen is a public health crisis in action. Congress needs to take action to protect it's constituency as soon as possible. Our lives and our children's lives depend on it.

When my daughter was just one year old she came within minutes of dying from an anaphylactic reaction the first time she tried nuts. After that day, the worst in my life, we were prescribed epipens and have carried them with us religiously day in and day out. This week she again started to have severe allergic reaction and I gave her the epipen. She could have been dead but within five minutes had stabilized. I am infinitely grateful to have celebrated Thanksgiving this year with her here rather than planning her funeral. I was able to afford the co-pay for my drug. So many others can't. Please make this drug affordable for all. Please don't force families to plan funerals versus birthday parties.

Price gouging on this scale just "because you can" (you have a patent on the design) is beyond immoral, it's reprehensible. I don't see how the people responsible for these decisions can sleep at night, knowing that they are making it difficult or even impossible for people to receive life saving medicine just so they can line their pockets a bit more. In fact, I'd be willing to bet that if the price were lowered a lot more people would purchase the product, resulting in a higher volume of sales and similar or even increased bottom line. Even if that's not true, ethics should be a more major concern. Regardless, Mylan could charge 1/4 of what they do and still make a significant profit. The technology and medication have been available for ages with no substantial changes, so it's certainly not like they're trying to recover massive R&D costs. I don't even have any known allergies or need Epinephrine personally, but this whole ordeal is just disgusting.

I didn't have insurance to cover the over $500 pens when I was prescribed them in the spring. By late summer when I had met my out of pocket, they were over $700. That's a fast jump.

http://www.naturalblaze.com/2016/11/aluminium-adjuvants-have-never-been-approved-for-use-in-vaccination.html According to Professor Christopher Exley?s recent research, there are currently two main aluminum adjuvants commonly used in vaccinations today. These are AlHydrogel, a semi-crystalline (boehmite) form of aluminium oxyhydroxide and AdjuPhos, an amorphous salt of aluminium hydroxyphosphate. The sulphate salt of the latter is also listed as being one component of an adjuvant system used in vaccinations against HPV. AlHydrogel? and AdjuPhos? are commonly referred to as clinically-approved aluminum adjuvants, and yet this is not the case. There are no aluminum adjuvants that have been approved for intramuscular or subcutaneous injection into humans. There are no requirements for their approval; they are only ?approved? as part of vaccine preparations. His words are extremely worrying, especially when you consider just how many vaccinations on the childhood vaccination schedule contain the adjuvant aluminum as an ingredient. Pharmaceuticals involve more underhanded skullduggery than a week in vegas. The CEOs of these companies should be executed for crimes against humanity
