Elmiron Lawsuits: Vision Damage
Elmiron is the brand name of a prescription medication called pentosan polysulfate sodium. It is used to treat bladder discomfort and/or bladder pain. Very serious questions have been raised about the safety of this drug. In 2020, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) determined that an official label change was warranted—a warning is now included regarding vision problems. Previously, American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) cited a study showing that there is significant evidence linking the commonly used bladder medication Elmiron to a wide range of vision problems and eye injuries. More specifically, the prescription drug Elmiron has been linked to:
- Blurred vision;
- Dimmed/spotty vision;
- Eye pain;
- Pigmentary maculopathy;
- Retina damage; and
- Vision loss.
We Need to Know What the Company Knew and When
Elmiron is produced by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a multinational pharmaceutical company with headquarters in Belgium. Janssen Pharmaceuticals and other drug manufacturers have a legal obligation to ensure that their prescription medications are reasonably safe for consumers. Proper warnings should always be given. Profits should never come before the health and safety of people.
We are investigating exactly what Janssen Pharmaceuticals knew and when they knew it. The company may be liable for vision problems and eye injuries caused by a dangerous and defective drug. If you or your family member suffered eye problems after taking Elmiron, financial compensation may be awarded for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages.
