Our lawyers handle Elmiorn vision loss lawsuits throughout the country.

This page provides the latest news and updates on the Elmiorn class action lawsuit and provides our prediction of the settlement amounts vision loss and blindness victims who bring an Elmiron lawsuit will ultimately receive.

Elmiron Side Effects

Our lawyers are handling Elmiron macular eye injury lawsuits in all 50 states alleging that victims’ macular degeneration was caused by the use of the drug for interstitial cystitis.

Elmiron is the brand name for pentosan polysulfate sodium, a prescription drug that is used by millions to treat a bladder condition called interstitial cystitis (IC).

In 2018, however, medical researchers discovered that prolonged use of Elmiron can cause some users to develop a new eye disease called pigmentary maculopathy which can result in vision impairment and blindness. Pigmentary maculopathy is only known to be caused by long-term use of pentosan polysulfate sodium.

Elmiron vision loss lawsuits are being filed at an increasing rate. Anyone that has been using the drug Elmiron to treat bladder conditions should be aware of the growing tide of concerns regarding the long-term side effects of this popular drug for interstitial cystitis.

After an initial wave of reports linking the use of Elmiron to serious vision impairment, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently stepped in and required the manufacturer of Elmiron to add a  new warning label.

The new warning label alerts doctors and patients that Elmiron may cause a rare eye disease called pigmentary maculopathy that can cause vision impairment or blindness. The new warning label comes just as Elmiron vision loss lawsuits are already being filed across the country. Ultimately, when an Elmiron class action settlement is reached down the road, I predict a strong, unambiguous black box warning of the side effects that include vision loss.
