RICHMOND, Va. - Virginia will receive more than $1.2 million in a settlement with Pfizer Inc. over its marketing of drugs Zyvox and Lyrica.
Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli said Wednesday that Virginia's share is part of a $42.9 million settlement between the pharmaceutical company and 32 states and the District of Columbia. The states claim that Pfizer used unfair and deceptive practices in promoting Zyvox, an antibacterial agent, and Lyrica, which is used to treat fibromyalgia.
Cuccinelli filed a consent judgment in Richmond Circuit Court to settle the claims.
Under the settlement, Pfizer does not admit wrongdoing but says it will change how it markets Zyvox and Lyrica.
