Say No to the hike in Price of Daraprim Tablets

For years drug companies have gotten away with overpricing life saving drugs and making the lives of users more stressful financially than it ought to be. It is now time for us to come together and take a stand against unscrupulous drugs companies like TURING PHARMACEUTICALS.

The recent hike in the price of the Drug DARAPRIM should serve as a wakeup call for all of us. This drug has been on the market since 1953. It is currently used by AIDS and Cancer patients. For 62 years this drug was affordable however now that has changed. In August Turing Pharmaceuticals acquired exclusive rights to the drug and the price has increased from $13.50 to $750.00 per tablet. Reason for this increase… GREED. This increase by Turing Pharmaceuticals is obnoxious and disgusting and it makes my stomach turn to know that they should want to profit this much from the plight of the most medically vulnerable among us.

We have to take a stand we cannot remain passive. We must lobby for measures to be put in place to protect patients from continued exploitation. If Turing Pharmaceuticals is allowed to get away with this price hike more companies will do the same. They have no moral conscience, no empathy for the patients battling complex diseases. Greed has clouded their judgment and stripped them of all humanity and moral obligation to act like decent human beings. Let us take a stand against Turing Pharmaceuticals. Boycott the sale of DARAPRIM. Let us stand in solidarity with AIDS and Cancer patients.
