Generic version of EpiPen to hit the market next week

Posted:

(CNN)--Starting next week, there will be a generic version of the EpiPen.

The EpiPen helps quickly treat people suffering from life-threatening allergic reactions.

Over the last several years, the drug company Mylan has increased the price of the treatment  by more than 400%-- resulting in harsh criticism and a federal investigation.

The generic version of the EpiPen will be about half the price-- $300  for two doses.
