(KSL News) -- Hundreds of Utahns are getting a hefty check from an anxiety drug manufacturer as part of a multi-state antitrust lawsuit settlement this week.

The prescription anti-anxiety drug, Buspar, is giving 305 Utahns refunds totalling more than $177,000 from Bristol-Myers Squibb.

The drug manufacturer is paying 41 million dollars for allegedly making false statements to the Food & Drug Administration and conspiring to keep generic drugs from entering the marketplace.

Refunds are determined by the amount of BuSpar purchased. The average refund in Utah is $581.
