— The Arkansas attorney general’s office has reached a settlement with a pharmaceutical company over allegations it paid inducements to doctors to prescribe certain drugs.

The office said Monday that the state will receive $75,000 from the settlement with Victory Pharma Inc. over prescriptions written for the drugs Naprelan, Xodol, Fexmid and Dolgic.

The $75,000 will be available to the state’s Medicaid program, including federal matching funds.

Arkansas was one of a number of states that joined the court action with the federal government.

The prescriptions in question were written between 2007 and 2009.
