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.

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.

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.
