Arkansas takes part in settlement with drug maker

Associated Press Published: November 19, 2012

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas is to receive $1.6 million as part of a 38-state settlement with drug maker GlaxoSmithKline LLC over the way it promoted the use of the diabetes drug Avandia.

Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel on Monday announced the state took part in a $90 million settlement with the states.

The company was accused of misrepresenting the risks of heart attack and stroke associated with Avandia.

The settlement requires GlaxoSmithKline to not make false, misleading or deceptive claims about any diabetes drugs.
