Tell Your Officials In Washington To Stop The Epi-Pen Price Gouging

The Epi-Pen scandal is unrelated to the heroin epidemic but, did you know that many of our Leaders in the State and in Washington have huge stock with large pharmaceutical companies?

Did you know this type of pay and play is how this heroin epidemic started in the first place?

Petition2Congress LogoWe 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 its 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.
