New York’s attorney general — along with the attorneys general of 19 other states — has filed a lawsuit against generic drugmakers for fixing prices and colluding.
The drugs in question are a generic antibiotic called doxycycline hyclate and an anti-diabetic medication called glyburide.
“Companies that collude and fix prices for generic drugs in order to pad their profits must be held accountable for the very real harm they inflict on New Yorkers’ ability to pay for life-saving medications,” New York’s Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman said in a statement.
The companies named were:
- Heritage Pharmaceuticals
- Aurobindo Pharma
- Citron Pharma
- Mayne Pharma
- Mylan Pharmaceuticals
- Teva Pharmaceuticals
