The state has picked up on a lawsuit against a company that makes a drug to help treat opioid addiction. 35 states, including Illinois, says Indivior took part in a scheme to squash any attempts at having a generic version of suboxone.
The drug is used to help patients addicted to heroin. And the AG’s Spokeswoman Eileen Boyce says the company was blocking attempts while pocketing big profits.
Madigan’s office and the other AG’s contend that standing in the way of generics from being made wound up costing patients money.
