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.

Why should life saving drugs be denied to everyone. Even if it is lowered to "just $300.00" that is too much for most people. Pirates.

Children, women and men who are not of the vaunted 1% go without this lifeline against a grueling death. 99% of the American People are held hostage by a satanic, psychopathic 1% of which Heather Bresch is a member. The Wrath Of Christ cannot come soon enough,,,

Children, women, and men in low income situations go without this because they can't afford it. It's price is criminal in my opinion.

As a physician I'm outraged at the selfserving price fixing by a company who has a monopoly in a lifesaving medicine.

We only have one child with allergies severe enough to require epiens, and the amount of $$ increase is oppressive. How can a family with several school aged children afford this. Mylan should be supplying these for little or no money.

Ridiculous and sad. No lifesaving drug should be out of reach for those who need it. This is not a new drug nor is it an expensive drug. Mylan's corporate greed illustrates the dark side of human nature, and of our society. Step in and make this right. The new price of the EpiPen should be LESS than it was before all of the increases. Better yet: FREE, as restitution.

This is despicable! Obviously she doesn't care about anyone but herself . So nothing will reach her or the company she heads. My hope is that at some point she will rejoin the human race.

Read this article, and then start making nooses, one for each member of the Manchin family: https://www.rt.com/usa/360084-epipen-medicare-medicaid-scam/ "Mylan has been highly scrutinized after increasing the price of its medical devices that fight life-threatening allergic reactions by 400 percent this year. The pharmaceutical company is now facing an enforcement action after not cooperating with the West Virginia attorney general?s subpoena issued last month, CNBC reported. Heather Bresch is the CEO of Mylan and is reportedly very well connected. The daughter of a former West Virginia governor and current US Senator Joe Manchin (D) is facing accusations that she used her mother Gayle?s position on the National Association of State Boards of Education to boost her company?s earnings. Gayle Manchin must have seemed to be very passionate about allergies when she was at the forefront of a movement to require schools to purchase EpiPens in 2012. Eleven states wrote laws requiring the powerful allergies-reversing medicine, and almost all of the remaining states strongly encouraged schools to keep epinephrine auto-injectors on hand in case of an emergency. The rapid interest in allergic reactions went all the way to the White House, where in 2013, President Barack Obama signed the EpiPen Law that gave preferential funding to states that encouraged EpiPens. Meanwhile, the cost of EpiPens was increasing. In 2007, two EpiPens, the common dosage for a year, cost $100. It is around this time that EpiPen prices began increasing by 30 percent each year, according to Fortune. By the time 2012 rolled around, they were over $200 for a two-pack."

Just witnessed a father unable to purchase an epipen for his because the cost of one was over $300. Disgusting.

I have 2 children with life threatening nut allergies. We have been carrying Epi Pens with us everywhere since 2007. The price of Epi pens is ridiculous.
