It looks like J&J got caught in another scam. They always get a pass, why even bother trying to stop them? They did the same thing in their contact lens division Acuvue a few years back. They succeeded in shutting down the competition so eye doctors can charge their patients whatever they want.

It doesn't come as a surprise. Johnson & Johnson is also involved in another kickback scandal associated with its subsidiary, DePuy's hip replacements. More information about this controversy may be seen in this article, http://www.hiprecalllaw.com/depuy-hip-replace...

This is the very reason why we should need to be careful about the drugs we are buying and using because it may be backed up by things like this and may put our health in jeopardy. http://www.vaginalmeshlawsuit.com
