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.

There is no reasonable nor reasoned explanation that would justify the price hiking of a necessary medication for millions. Men, women, and children will die for line someone's pocket - someone who doesn't need nor deserve such a raise. Why shouldn't such medications that have been around for 20+ years not be limited to a certain price point? Salk gave his polio vaccine for free because it was beneficial for all humanity, and Mylan is gauging American families for a similarly beneficial drug because they get more money. Stop price gouging of the epipen and insulin and other life-saving medications by setting a price standard for medications.

I am just a mom, begging for my child to have a chance in his anaphylaxis battle with peanuts. I didn't get an 18 million dollar raise, paying these prices is not realistic. Please, do something!

Can't believe inflation is to blame everyone blames inflation but are they not the ones cause the rise in inflation I think companies should stop raising the prices it doesn't cost more to make something to then it did ten years ago just rent and purchasing but they want to raise the amount of payment to upper class management and tell us it cost she said she made over millions of dollars sorry they should be ashamed of themselves

A criminal shakedown. My suggestion is that the CEO of Mylan be required to pay for every breath she takes on the same inflationary basis as her company prices its $10 (cost) product. She might find there are things more important than money.

Why does anyone need $19M to survive? This seems to be the magic number (Wells Fargo CEO at $19M). The rest of us need to survive on a fraction of this. Having a monopoly on a drug that costs a few dollars to produce with a net profit of over $600/Epipen does not take a lot of research and thought. Screwing the "Make America Great Again" people is not worth $19M/year. Even I could have come up that idea if greed was my only driver.

People shouldn't have to pay this much for life-saving medication. Nor should our taxes or insurance premiums go up because of price hikes, even if they don't have to pay for it out-of-pocket. Corporations need to be held accountable for social responsibility just like any citizen would be.

My brother is severely allergic to bees and he cannot afford this medication. I would be embarrassed to work for a company that price gouges life-saving medication.
