Pfizer will pay $975,000 to the State of Oregon to resolve allegations that the pharmaceutical company distributed misleading advertising materials and coupons to state residents.  The materials advertised Pfizer’s drugs the Flector Patch, Estring, Quillivant, and Quillichew, claiming that consumers would “pay no more than” specified amounts — $15, $20, or $25.  In fact, consumers ended up paying more than advertised for the Pfizer drugs, despite the availability of cheaper generic alternatives.  A large portion of the settlement, $620,000, will go to Oregon nonprofits that provide medical care to low-income uninsured and underinsured, including migrant and seasonal farmworkers.  In addition, consumers who used the coupons will receive refunds.  OR AG
