If you or your child suffer from life-threatening allergies, then you know that having the proper medication on hand at all times can literally lead to a life or death situation. This past summer, pharmaceutical giant Mylan drew harsh criticism when they increased the price of their injectable epinephrine EpiPen to $600.00 for a two-pack, sending many into a tailspin.
CVS Health recently announced good news for consumers who are trying to figure out how to afford the costly medication. Even though Mylan came up with a generic solution, retailing for $300.00, CVS Health has come up with an even cheaper alternative.
The drugstore chain will sell a generic version of the EpiPen, which will be one-third the cost of Mylan’s new generic. The Impax Laboratories’ Adrenaclick treatment will retail for $109.99 for a two-pack, helping consumers save exponentially.
