4:04 pm
control of that. >> reporter: the price of a 2- dose package topped $600 earlier this year. that is up from $94 just in my opinion years ago according to a price tracking data base. it came at the same time that many top executives got a big raise. and of course the high cost has people asking about alternatives to the epipen if there are any at all. john torres joins us live nbc in new york. great to see you. we know you have been covering this from a national perspefkt all week. -- perspective all week. >> reporter: great tosy you as well -- see you as well. this does impact a lot of families. this is a life saving medication but people have to be able to afford it. it's one of the things i tell patients all the time you have to figure out if you can afford

companies. they're a little more complicated and that's the big concern. epipen is the one people have known about for years. there is another one called adrinaclick. it's a little more complicated and different but still quite easy. just have to know how to exactly use that in an emergency. there are some people that are going the old fashioned route of using the vile and syringe and needle and that's even more complicated. you can imagine if life saving situation and have to draw something out of a vile and inject that, that can be pretty time consuming and the adrenaline is flowing in your own body. >> it's of course -- that's of course if you're with your own child. a lot of times i have a friend who has a 2-year-old son that just dropped him off the other day. had an allergic reaction from someone else's kid. we're talking having one with
