[Update] Mylan to offer generic EpiPen

Leave a comment

Mylan, the pharmaceutical company that makes EpiPens, has announced that it will soon sell a generic version of the emergency epinephrine delivery product used to treat severe allergic reactions. The generic product will be identical to the existing product but will cost half as much, with a list price of $300 for a two-pack. Mylan’s EpiPen pricing strategy attracted considerable negative attention recently, despite efforts to lower out of pocket costs for consumers. The introduction of an identical generic product has not assuaged critics who continue to question why the company would not simply reduce the retail price of the branded product.
