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.

My son is severely allergic to peanuts and we have unfortunately had to use epi pens twice to help save his life after accidental ingestion. I went to refill his prescription today and was told after insurance the cost is $600. I need to buy two packs of this which is $1200. This is outrageous!! This life saving medication is not an option for us and I will be forced to pay this high price for no reason other than greed. It makes me sick.

Inject an EpiPen full of God's Wrath into Mylan CEO, Heather Bresch, her Shill of a father, W.VA Senator Joe Manchin, and Obama who allowed Pharmaceuticals to pull this kind of crap under his Manchurian "presidency" Americans across the nation DYING because of these Greedy Pieces of satan Sh!t. The American People must press President-Elect Trump to put, at the VERY Least, Life Term Prison Sentences for the likes of Heather Bresch, and Execution for High Treason sentences for "Public Servants" as in "Joke Joe" and "Muslim Manchurian"

This is just so morally wrong! Don't pharmaceutical companies make enough money already? How can anyone do something like this, knowing that they put the lives of children with allergies at risk, and sleep at night?

I have insurgence, but it will only pay $50 dollars, and the coupon up to $300, and I am still have to pay $300. How come a device originally invented and used in US Military get monopolized by a pharmaceutical company? Congress should investigate.

The price hike for epi-pen jr. Is putting childrens lives at risk. The medication itself cost pennnies but they want to rob hard working parents who dont have insurance. If i could afford $600 then I would have insurance. Now I am left with no decision pay my house or buy life saying medication for my son that he may not need, but since he attends a school that is not peanut free there is no choice for me. The company had a choice, and they chose BIG profit over the safety of our children. Prescription drug companys have run our country for too long and I think its time for our government to grow some balls, stand up to drug companies and defend the american people instead of lining their pockets to look the other way.

We broke up a telephone system that was doing a fine job and was not gouging because they were a monopoly. Break up Mylan BECAUSE of gouging monopoly on Epipen and holding Americans hostage with life or death possibilities. Also open drug purchasing from other nations to creat a competetive marketplace to prevent this sort of thing happening over and over again.

I have had anaphylaxis to shellfish for 4 years now, I am very careful and have not had to use my epi-pen. But I have to buy new epi-pens every year because they expire and I will now reconsider buying one ever year and how can you charge that much money for something that will save lives and it is not really our choice to have these allergies.

Mylan is unethical to reset the price of epipen where many death are inevitable. Congress has the power to indict Mylan, seize their assets and throw them out of the U.S. Do it.
