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.

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.

I am unclear why this woman has gained over a 600% increase in her salary. Someone needs to explain to the public why this is even allowed. When is it enough profit, when she has it all?

We are a family who depends on availability of the epipen for life or death. We receive no federal assistance for anything - food, healthcare, living, etc. and after paying these expenses we then have to choose the route of savings, which is either retirement or our children's education. This rise in cost will affect the latter and we question the exact reasoning of the increase for nothing other than beyond exorbitant profit.

The American People MUST FIGHT BACK or CONTINUE TO BE ADULTERATED SHEEP. IT IS Just THAT Simple. "The Wicked" of this world have been flaunting in our faces for Ages just what They intend to do to Us, Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World" , right down to movies like 1975 'Rollerball' a nightmarish game invented by a handful of Corporations that have replaced Governments (One Evil traded for Another) 99.9% of lucifer's 'power' is given to it, by Humans ourselves. How about we stop being fodder for demoniac psychopaths for a change?

As a physician and a patient who has had an anaphylactic reaction to sesame seeds, the price of an epipen is unethical. I remember when it was under $50. This has nothing to do with research or inflation but greed.
