Elmiron Class Action Lawsuit
Since 1996, millions have been prescribed Elmiron which was once believed to be a safe drug. Elmiron has been shown to possibly cause an eye condition in users. Patients have filed suit against the company demanding they take responsibility for the harm Elmiron caused them.
Elmiron is one of the few treatments designed to treat Painful Bladder Syndrome which causes pressure and pain on the bladder and frequent urination. It is supposed to coat the damaged bladder wall, but believed to have a low risk of side-effect.
The Discovery of Risks
However, in 2015, the risk in the form of a toxic build u began to show in some patients. Lawsuits allege that evidence indicates the company that produces Elmiron knew of the risk yet never gave a warning which means patients may have grounds for legal action. Janssen Pharmaceuticals, the maker of Elmiron, has failed to return requests for comments nor included vision issues in the list of possible risks.
The Atlanta Emory Eye Center doctors began to observe an eye problem in patients in 2015. They thought it was Retinal Maculopathy, but they couldn’t find the cause. After ruling out other causes, they found six patients the examined had been taking Elmiron. The connection shown more over the years, and doctors published the new discovery of a possible connection between Elmiron and Retinal Maculopathy. Further investigation after this study led to additional investigations which confirmed the discovery.
