AG orders drug maker to halt discontinuation of Alzheimer’s med

ALBANY, N.Y. – New York’s Attorney General says a drug maker has been ordered to stop plans to discontinue its widely used Alzheimer’s medication, all in an effort to drive patients to a newer drug.

The company said its new drug, which only has to be taken once a day instead of twice, is better and that demand is growing.

However, AG Eric Schneiderman says the company is trying to block competition while keeping drug prices high.

The company is appealing and they are expected back in court on Monday.
