Abbott labs may pay at least $1.3 billion in Depakote marketing suit

Abbott Laboratories will be paying at least $1.3 billion in order to settle a lawsuit over the alleged illegal marketing of the antisiezure medication, Depakote.

The suit was filed by the U.S. government and 24 states after claiming that the drug was illegally marketed by the company in order to be prescribed for unapproved uses. The drug maker will allegedly be paying $800 million to settle and $500 million to settle criminal penalties.

This information was given by those close to the settlement because information has not officially been released. Abbott Laboratories have said that they put $1.5 billion aside in order to cover the costs.

Depakote is facing other legal trouble because many are claiming that the epilepsy drug caused children to suffer from birth defects if the drug was taken in the first trimester of pregnancy.
