While once the crown jewel of Mylan's product portfolio, the trouble over manufacturing, increased competition and a pricing scandal have tarnished the EpiPen brand. "Since this time, Mylan and Pfizer have remained in close contact with FDA to provide regular updates on the inventory status", the company added.

Pfizer and the FDA maintained there was no national shortage of the lifesaving medication. The shortage includes EpiPens, which are pre-filled devices used to treat life-threatening allergic reactions known as anaphylaxis. The Company states that they are expediting shipment to wholesalers as soon as they receive supply from MMT.

"If you have a severe allergy and carry epinephrine, it is important to know that each brand functions a little differently". Check the expiration date on the ones you have, and if any have expired, call your doctor or pharmacy for a refill.
EpiPen prices ranged from $500 to over $700. The generic price is $300. One such brand is Auvi-Q, so customers could try out this alternative. Dr. Allen said for parents whose children depend on it - the amount is priceless.
