A Generic Version of an EpiPen Is On Sale

CVS is now selling a rival, generic version of Mylan's EpiPen at about 1/6th of its price. The drugstore chain says it will charge $109.99 for a two-pack of the authorized generic version of Adrenaclick, a lesser-known treatment compared to EpiPen, which can cost more than $600.

This items is now on sale just months after the maker of the lifesaving allergy treatment was eviscerated before Congress because of its soaring cost to consumers.

CVS Health Corp., the nation's second-largest drugstore chain, says it cut the price it charges for the generic version of Adrenaclick nearly in half. The lower price is now available at all CVS stores.
