Drug Settlement Gives Patients Money in the Bank

Web Producer: Amber Griswold

There's money in the bank for the more than twenty-two hundred Hoosiers, who took the drug Buspar.

Those Hoosiers, along with thousands of others nationwide, will share a $1.4 million settlement. Each person will be getting on average about six-hundred dollars each.

Attorney Generals in all fifty states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia alleged Buspar maker Bristol Myer Squibb, conspired to illegally maintain its monopoly on the sale of the drug.

Buspar is used to treat anxiety disorders like Alzheimer's disease.
