Since being approved in 1996 for treating pain and discomfort associated with interstitial cystitis, millions of patients throughout the country have taken Elmiron. However, the drug’s active ingredient, pentosan polysulfate sodium, can cause an irreparable type of retinal damage known as pigmentary maculopathy. Up to 25% of patients with long-term Elmiron usage exhibited eye damage. The vision of many victims continues to deteriorate long after discontinuing the use of Elmiron. Thousands of victims who have suffered retinal damage are pursuing lawsuits to hold Janssen Pharmaceuticals accountable for the lack of concern for patients’ eyesight in pursuit of increased revenues. Instead of warning doctors and patients about the dangers of vision loss caused by its drug, Janssen chose to turn a blind eye. Consequently, the retina damage caused by Elmiron’s toxicity was frequently misdiagnosed as an age-related eye disease.

Victims may be eligible to receive monetary compensation for their medical bills, necessary future eye treatments, lost wages, reduced earning capacity, permanent loss of vision, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment, and any other unanticipated damages. Most importantly, your lawsuit can help pressure Janssen into finally accepting responsibility for the harm it caused. It often takes expensive settlements and humiliating jury trials to encourage drug manufacturers to take consumers’ health more seriously.

Our ultimate goal is to help you obtain the compensation that you deserve so that you can receive proper macular degeneration treatment to save your eyes.

Eye Damages Frequently Associated With Elmiron

Recent medical research has uncovered a significant correlation between long-term Elmiron use and macular degeneration (AMD). In the early stages, you might not even experience obvious signs of macular degeneration. As a result, the disease often goes undiagnosed until it affects both eyes or worsens. If you have been prescribed Elmiron for an extended period and begin to experience any eye issues, the Dietrich Law Firm P.C.’s battle-tested lawyers recommend contacting your doctor for a checkup immediately. You should mention any vision irregularities, such as prolonged light to dark adaptation or metamorphopsia, to your doctor. Five common symptoms of macular degeneration to pay close attention to include:

  1. Poor quality or less clear vision;
  2. Blurry vision, making it difficult to read small print or even drive;
  3. Dark, shadowy spots in the center of your vision;
  4. Trouble seeing during the night time; and
  5. Seeing less vivid or worse color perception.
