I use this medication so this is personally affecting me.  At comes at a time I can not take any more increases of my medications cost.  I am almost, not yet, but almost to the point I will have to stop getting treatment for some things to keep treatment on others.   Is this the right thing, the American way?  I served two tours in the US military, I worked up until my body failed, I worked hard to get better and I worked again until working became life threatening.  Now I will suffer until I die for my effort, but I tried, I did my part.  Now I can not even afford the care to take me to death.   This so someone can make millions, more than the millions they were making.  Will my death and the rest of the people’s death be worth that millions to anyone? sad hugs

As Mylan’s EpiPen prices rose over 400 percent, pay for its top executive jumped over 600 percent.
