Lawsuits filed by 38 state attorneys general against GlaxoSmithKline and SB Pharmo Puerto Rico alleging the pharmaceutical companies violated drug manufacturing standards have been settled.

The lawsuits claim that the anti-nausea drug Kytril, antibacterial ointment Bactroban, slow release antidepressant Paxil CR, and diabetes drug Avandamet, manufactured or sold between 2001 and 2004 were improperly manufactured and distributed, were not sterilized, and contained different dosages then was marked on the label.

Courthouse News Service reports that terms under the settlement require the drug manufacturers to stop misrepresenting product characteristics, or “or causing confusion or misunderstanding about the way in which they are manufactured.”

Illinoise Attorney General Lisa Madigan said that people who are currently taking these drugs need not worry about the quality of the medications, as the manufacturing plant where the drugs involved in the lawsuits were manufactured has closed.
