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.
