Elmiron: Mass Tort Lawsuit
Elmiron is a medication made by Janssen Pharmaceuticals prescribed for the treatment of interstitial cystitis, a bladder disorder that causes abdominal pain. It is also known as painful bladder disorder, and is frequent among women.
Recent research has linked the interstitial cystitis drug Elmiron to eye damages and an eye disease known as Maculopathy.
Common Elmiron-related eye damages are:
- Difficulty reading
- Blurred vision
- Difficulty adjusting eyes to darkness
- Distorted vision
- Dimmed vision
- Far and near sightedness
- Spots in field of vision
Maculopathy is typically diagnosed by ophthalmologists. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and have taken Elmiron, please contact a doctor first. Southside Injury Attorneys cannot determine if you have Maculopathy.
Elmiron has been prescribed for over 20 years and has only recently been linked to these eye damages. It is possible that Elmiron patients in the past have had their eye damages wrongfully diagnosed.
Medical professionals urge anyone who has taken the prescribed drug Elmiron to schedule examinations and consultations with their doctors.
