Chicago filed a lawsuit against five major producers of pharmaceutical products on Tuesday, accusing the group of concealing the risks associated with certain painkillers and seeking to recover nearly $10 million in prescription costs. Alleging that drugmakers "should never place its desire for profits above the health and well-being of its customers," the city said that the companies knew for years that certain pain-alleviating drugs were addictive and could prove debilitating in the long-term. The five companies named in the suit include Actavis, Endo Health Solutions, Janssen Pharmaceuticals —a unit of Johnson & Johnson, Purdue Pharma and Cephalon, a division of generic drug giant Teva.
