Botox Maker Allergan Fined $600 Million For Misleading Marketing

Botox Maker Admits Off-Brand Wrongdoing

Allergan, the company that makes Botox, Juvederm, and Latisse, is paying out $600 million in settlement money on charges that the company illegally promoted Botox to doctors for unapproved uses like pain relief and cerebral palsy treatment in children.

Allergan has admitted that its marketing practices were misleading and that it helped physicians file fraudulent Medicaid and Medicare claims related to off-label use. Does this put you off Allergan products, or are you unsurprised?
