1. notice how, once again, they're coming up with a solution that keeps the epipen price high

now they're also gonna grab themselves a slice of the generic market as well.

they're doing everything they can to make it *look* like they're fixing the problem except actually lowering the price of epipens.

2. Yes I have!

I use an inhaler & they did the same to the prices of this & force me to pay more for something else.

3. Animal use epinephrine is so cheep

$20.00 for 50 ml@ml per 100 pounds. That works out to about $0.40 per dose. Make it a dollar including the disposal syringe.

I have an allergy to horse sera. We always keep the epinephrine handy when using tetanus antitoxin which is equine serum. If I'm in anaphylactic shock I'll not bet to fussed getting vet med.

6. All I Can Say

is I hope it works better than some of the generics I've encountered.
