How to Qualify for an Elmiron Lawsuit
You may qualify for an Elmiron vision loss lawsuit if you suffered from any eye issue while taking Elmiron. This includes maculopathy, blurry vision, and blindness in one or both eyes.
Can Elmiron cause blindness?
In February 2020, an article was published on the National Institute of Health's website titled, "Possible drug-induced, vision-threatening maculopathy secondary to chronic pentosan polysulfate sodium (Elmiron®) exposure". The authors recommend ophthalmic screening in any PPS-exposed patient with any vision complaints for evidence of this maculopathy.
What is the drug Elmiron used for?
Elmiron was commonly prescribed to treat Interstitial cystitis, which is a chronic regional pain syndrome of the bladder and pelvis. Millions of Americans may have been prescribed Elmiron without knowledge of the risk of eye damage.
Is there an Elmiron recall?
There is presently no recall on Elmiron. Instead, multiple lawsuits were filed around the country. Recently, to make the cases more streamlined and efficient in their handling, a Multi-District Litigation case (or Elmiron MDL) was created. The Elmiron MDL will generally handle common issues involving Elmiron, like determining whether the manufacturer was negligent or whether there is strict liability.
Can I get money if I took Elmiron and had maculopathy?
