After harsh light, a cheaper version of the EpiPen.
Mylan is releasing a generic version of its emergency allergy treatment EpiPen at half the price of the much-critcized branded option.
Mylan NV said Friday that it will charge $300 for the generic version of its life-saving injections, which come in a two pack. The generic version will begin to reach retail pharmacies next week.
The list price of an EpiPen two-pack, which is stocked by schools and parents of children with severe allergies, now tops $600, an increase of more than 500 percent since 2007, when Mylan bought rights to the drug. The price hikes drew scorn and Congressional inquiry.
