TRENTON, N.J. | Drugmaker to sell cheaper generic rival to EpiPen injectors
TRENTON, N.J. — Generic drugmaker Sandoz announced plans Thursday to start selling a slightly cheaper version of the EpiPen in the U.S. early next year.
The penlike injectors are used to halt life-threatening allergic reactions to insect bites, nuts and other foods. Brand-name EpiPen, which dominates the market, has been in short supply since spring because of production problems.
Sandoz will sell a pair of injectors, under the name Symjepi, for $250 without insurance.
