of Epi pins to $600.00 or more.
Need these or can DIE
Doctors and patients say the
Mylan pharmaceutical company
has jacked up the prices for an EpiPen
-- the portable device that can stop a
potentially life-threatening allergic reaction -
- from around $100 in 2008 to $600 and up today.
How could anyone invest in a company like this.
I would get out of that stock, ugh!!
They are *#@&%$ money grubbing Bastards.
I hate this GREED. What has happened to the world?
Most people can't afford this. How inhumane of these Drug companies.
The Govt. should fine them. It's a form of extortion. Where's the Justice?
Heather Bresch, now Mylan’s
chief executive officer,
hit on the idea of using
old-fashioned marketing in
part to boost sales among concerned parents of children
with allergies. That started EpiPen, which delivers about
$1 worth of the hormone epinephrine, on a run that’s resulted
in its becoming a $1 billion-a-year product that clobbers
its rivals and provides about 40 percent of Mylan’s operating profits,
says researcher ABR|Healthco. EpiPen
margins were 55 percent in 2014, up from 9 percent in 2008,
ABR|Healthco estimates. It's off the charts. They are Greedy
and don't give a damn about US citizens. The Govt, has to stop
them from this outrageous charging.
There’s Absolutely No Reason Why an EpiPen Should Cost $600
