Oxygen has staked its claim as the top network for true crime with shows like ‘Snapped’, ‘The Piketon Family M

Two whistleblowers from a company responsible for a 97,000% hike in the price of a drug have claimed in a lawsuit that the company bribed doctors and their staff to increase sales of the drug to cheat the government out of millions of dollars and lied to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about its attempt “to conceal and cover-up its payment of kickbacks and its illegal promotion of HP Acthar Gel.” 

According to CNN, the lawsuit, which has been filed against Questcor Pharmaceuticals, now Mallinckrodt, claims the deceit was part of a “multi-tiered strategy” to boost the sales of HP Acthar Gel.
