Elmiron is a drug used to treat bladder problems caused by interstitial cystitis (IC). Patients with IC typically experience bladder pain, discomfort, and the need to urinate often.
Elmiron, also known by its generic name pentosan polysulfate, is believed to work by protecting the bladder walls from irritants in the urine, thereby relieving pain and discomfort.
However, there is some conflicting evidence as to its effectiveness, and the variety of side effects associated with the drug raises questions as to whether it should be on the market at all.
Studies have linked long-term use of Elmiron to pigmentary maculopathy and other potentially permanent vision problems.
Researchers found that pigmentary maculopathy is unique to people exposed to Elmiron’s active ingredient, pentosan polysulfate sodium. Elmiron eye damage may be misdiagnosed as another type of eye condition.
Elmiron has been on the market since the 1990s. But prior to June 2020, Elmiron’s prescribing information did not warn about maculopathy or vision problems.
Lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson’s subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceuticals say the company knew the drug could cause vision damage but did not warn the public.
In June 2020 the manufacturer of Elmiron updated its label with the FDA to warn physicians for the first time that long-term use of Elmiron has been reported to cause eye damage.
The only way to stop this abuse is to take legal action. CLICK BELOW to become involved in this lawsuit.
