There is a Canadian class action on behalf of people who were prescribed OxyContin or OxyNEO anytime between January 1, 1996, and February 28, 2017 and became addicted.
A $20 million settlement agreement has was approved by the courts for Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan.
Anyone with a claim must file it by February 27th, 2024.
