J&J Will Pay $181 Million Over Risperdal Marketing Claims

Johnson & Johnson will pay $181 million to resolve claims by 36 states that it improperly marketed and advertised the antipsychotic drugs Risperdal and Invega.

J&J and its Janssen unit settled claims that it promoted the drugs from 1998 through 2004 for uses not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said today the accord is the largest multistate consumer protection-based pharmaceutical settlement.
