Generic EpiPen hits market

Posted: Updated:


The company that makes EpiPens has announced it's launched a generic version of the expensive medication. Mylan was under fire this past summer for massive price hikes of its EpiPens.

Mylan says the generic version will be stocked in pharmacies next week. A two-pack will cost $300, half the price of the brand name.

The auto-injector is pre-loaded with epinephrine and is used when a person has a severe allergic reaction.

The generic version will be identical to the brand-name version.
