LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas — Attorney General Dustin McDaniel says Arkansas, other states and the federal government have agreed to a settlement with Shire Pharmaceuticals LLC over allegations that Shire illegally marketed five drugs.

McDaniel said Thursday that the settlement means Arkansas' Medicaid program will receive $619,894.

Shire was accused of illegally promoting the drugs Adderall XR, Vyvanse, Daytrana, Lialda and Pentasa — causing false claims to be submitted to Medicaid.

Shire said in a statement that it will pay a total of $56.5 million, plus interest, fees and other costs. The company admits no wrongdoing.
