CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Abbott Laboratories is paying $1.6 billion to settle claims that it illegally marketed the drug Depakote.

Depakote is an anti-seizure medication, but federal investigators said Abbott illegally marketed it for other uses, including for the treatment of schizophrenia, agitated dementia and autism.

Illinois will receive $20 million as part of the settlement to resolve civil cases and consumer protection matters.
