    $300 for the generic for a $20 device is still way too high.
    Still room for another company to undercut them.

    I guess it was allergic to just about everything judging from how many times the mother screamed at me "Don't"
    It happens. I was like that. Luckily I outgrew everything. Only fruit like bananas and mangos makes my tongue itch a little bit, but not enough to stop me from eating it.

    Shame so sad, she died while eating food while the rest of Africa dies from starvation.
    I've walked for miles inside this pit of danger, a place where no one follows me, I walk alone.

    Only because of the FDA, who I believe wanted the Epipen design as they considered it the best design.

    With billions of dollars and a decades-long epinephrine reign on the line, Mylan’s controversy-laden EpiPen story may have one major plot point: a small plastic cap.

    To protect its monopoly, Mylan petitioned the FDA last year to reject a generic from Teva Pharmaceutical Industries. Teva's copycat was not equivalent, Mylan said, and shouldn't be eligible for approval.

    In what way? Mylan cited EpiPen’s one-cap design, which releases at the push of a button, versus Teva’s device, which must be uncapped before use. A removable cap such as Teva’s could cause confusion, Mylan said, especially for patients dealing with an emergency.

    The details of Teva's rejection aren't public, so there's no way of knowing whether the cap played a role. But it wouldn't be the first time that a delivery device kept copycat drugmakers at bay. GlaxoSmithKline, for instance, has enjoyed years of exclusivity on its respiratory blockbuster Advair, simply because its still-patented Diskus inhaler was too difficult to match.

    In EpiPen's case, what's clear is that the FDA denied Mylan's citizen petition, because acting on that one feature of Teva's product would have subverted the agency's usual approval process, CDER chief Janet Woodcock said in a letter. But the agency left the door open to using Mylan's argument in rejecting the generic eventually.

    When the rejection came, the FDA cited “certain major deficiencies." Neither Teva nor the agency has specified what, exactly, those deficiencies are. Cap or not? Either way, the FDA's rejection pushed Teva’s anticipated launch to 2017 or later.

    Aside from being rather insensitive this comment only highlights a poor knowledge of geography. Bath is a city in England.
