What is wrong with Elmiron?
Recent medical research has connected Elmiron, a prescription medication used to treat bladder conditions, to severe eye disease. This eye damage worsens with time, often before symptoms begin.
How does Elmiron cause Eye Disease?
In 2018, researchers at the Emory Eye Center at the Emory School of Medicine in Atlanta, GA, alerted the public that taking Elmiron is linked to maculopathy (serious retina injury)
- Maculopathy is any pathological condition of the macula, an area of the retina that is associated with highly sensitive, accurate vision.
Researchers say that all patients in the study showed signs of retinal disease and that the youngest patient in the study was diagnosed with interstitial cystitis at 23 years of age. That patient began taking Elmiron daily and began showing visual symptoms (difficulty with near vision as well as reading) by the age of 30.
Symptoms of Maculopathy include:
- Loss of Vision
- Difficulty Reading
- Difficulty Adapting to Dim Lighting
- Dark spot near center of vision
- Distorted vision
Can I File a Lawsuit for my Eye Damage?
Yes. There is no excuse for drug-makers who fail to warn patients about severe side effects. Those who have suffered vision loss or blindness after taking Elmiron may be eligible to file a lawsuit.
We are taking this fight directly to Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., the maker of Elmiron, and are ready to secure the compensation you deserve. This can include:
- The cost of your current and future medical bills
- Recovery of income lost if you are unable to work
- Pain and suffering damages
- Mental anguish damages
- Loss of enjoyment of life damages
- Punitive damages against a company or manufacturer
