Sarah Jessica Parker, who was previously part of a campaign with Mylan, has a 13-year-old son that suffers from severe peanut and hazelnut allergies. “I hope they will seriously reconsider the outpouring of voices of those millions of people who are dependent on the device, and take swift action to lower the cost to be more affordable for whom it is a life-saving necessity," she wrote.

In response to the firestorm, the drugmaker announced Thursday it would offer discounts for the EpiPen, including coupons covering up to $300 "for patients in health plans who face higher out-of-pocket costs."

As a US trained Pharmacist, it is an outrageous price hike and there is just no excuse for it.
