The Price of EpiPens Has Gone up by 500%, Leaves Patients, Parents and Schools Scrambling to Keep Up Supplies
If this is not the ultimate case for corporate greed, I don't know what is. These EpiPens could mean the difference between life and death for some adults and children, and now with this price hike many people will have to go with out.
Can you imagine having an allergy so severe that you need to have an EpiPen on or near you at all times, this would be scary enough imagine if this lifesaving shot now costs $600 for 2 of them, plus they expire after 1 year.
The pharmaceutical company Mylan purchased the company back in 2007,and now for no apparent reason has jacked up the price 500% .This price spike also happened after their competition quite making these pens due to inaccurate dosage issues. So now with no competition what so ever up goes the price.
