The Price gouging ex-hedgefund manager gets a well-deserved roasting from a real doctor.

The pharmaceutical company CEO got absolutely destroyed by a physician who exposed his limited understanding of how the drugs he sells actually work.

“Medically speaking I haven’t yet heard of why your drug’s worth $749 more than my pyrimethamine,” said a Reddit user identified himself as Anandya, a doctor who works for a charity. “Does it improve on the nausea, vomiting and (diarrhea)? Does it have a folate sparing effect? Can it be used in pregnant women and in epileptics?”

“No one’s been able to tell me what your upgrade is or how it works or even if it is a cost saving upgrade,” the physician said, asking what changes or improvements his company had made to the drug to warrant the price increase.

Shkreli admitted his company sold the same form of pyrimethamine, or Daraprim, that had been on the market for 70 years — although he expressed hope that his company could develop a more potent form of the drug that did not hinder the body’s production of folic acid.
