Mylan Epipen Testimony and Update

In case you missed the testimony of Mylan's CEO Heather Bresch, you can see a replay via CSPAN.org. One of the items talked about during the testimony is the availability of generic Epipen. Ms. Bresch indicated that it would be the same product as the Epipen (from transcript of video on CSPAN - at about 30:53 on the video):

>> HERE IS WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND. WHEN YOU BUY THE GENERIC VERSION, IN THE GENERIC -- WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE IN THE GENERIC VERSION? IS IT JUST THE NAME? >> IT WILL BE -- WE WILL -- IT WILL BE THE SAME PRODUCT WITH EPINEPHRINE AUTO INJECTOR ON IT, [IT WILL BE] SAME PRODUCT. >>

The Boston Globe reported that the generic Epipen will not be available until the end of the year.
