Retaining The Dietrich Law Firm P.C. To Litigate Your Elmiron Eye Damage Lawsuit Millions of Americans suffer from interstitial cystitis, a poorly understood bladder disorder that causes continuous pelvic pain and difficulty urinating. Also known as painful bladder syndrome, the condition is much more prevalent in women than men. Patients diagnosed with interstitial cystitis are frequently prescribed Elmiron (pentosan polysulfate sodium), the only oral medication approved by the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for treating accompanying pain and discomfort. However, many of those who have taken the drug endured unforeseen, life-altering side effects. Approximately one-fourth of all patients who were prescribed Elmiron long-term suffered some degree of eye damage.

Elmiron, developed and marketed by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, relieves pain by coating the bladder to shield against irritation. Ophthalmologists at Emory University noticed that many of their patients being treated for macular degeneration (AMD) were also prescribed Elmiron. In 2018, the first report of retinal damage linked to Elmiron was published. Subsequent research not only confirmed the relationship between the drug and retinal damage but found that a rare type of maculopathy, called pigmentary maculopathy, only occurred in Elmiron users. Furthermore, scientists discovered that the longer patients were prescribed the drug, the higher risk they had of developing maculopathy. Pigmentary maculopathy is an eye disease that causes deterioration of the small central part of the retina, known as the macula. Gradually, the disease results in significant vision loss and other unwanted symptoms, such as trouble reading, difficulty seeing objects up close, seeing dark spots, dimming vision, night blindness, and perceiving colors less vividly. Unfortunately, one of the latest studies published in Retinal Cases and Brief Reports indicates that users can develop Elmiron maculopathy even years after discontinuing the drug.
