Deadline, Toll-Free number Changes for Buspar Settlement

(Phoenix, AZ—March 10, 2003)—Last week the Attorney General’s Office announced the preliminary settlement with Bristol-Myers Squibb on the drug BuSpar. The toll-free telephone number and the period for which consumers may claim damages were incorrect.  

The consumer fund will provide recompense to consumers for the entire damages period allowed by the Court, effectively, January 1, 1998 through January 31, 2003, not December 31, 2002 as originally reported.  

Consumers wishing additional information may go to the web site at or may call toll-free to (800) 678-9587.
