Elmiron® is widely prescribed to treat bladder pain resulting from cystitis. There’s growing evidence that this medication is linked to maculopathy, an eye disorder that could lead to vision loss.

Lawsuits are now being filed against the maker of Elmiron, Janssen Pharmaceuticals. If you’ve taken Elmiron and are experiencing vision loss, now is a critical time to explore your legal options. Our team is currently accepting inquiries about legal action against Janssen Pharmaceuticals.

Studies Suggest Elmiron Is Toxic to the Retina

The medical community continues to find troubling links between prolonged exposure to Elmiron and vision loss. These findings lead experts to believe that the drug is toxic to the retina, resulting in maculopathy and vision loss for users.

One review of people with significant exposure to Elmiron found that up to one-quarter of users experienced definite signs of eye damage. For years, people struggling with interstitial cystitis believed that there were few risks associated with Elmiron. Now, it’s clear that this medication does indeed come with risks.

Elmiron-related vision loss might lead to:

  • Difficulty reading
  • Difficulty seeing in low light
  • Trouble seeing objects close-up
  • Spotty vision
  • Blindness

These are just a few possible consequences of maculopathy stemming from prolonged exposure to Elmiron. If you notice any of these symptoms, see a doctor immediately. If you’re interested in exploring your legal options, we’re now offering free consultations.

Why File a Lawsuit Against Janssen Pharmaceuticals

Drug manufacturers should be held responsible for harm that their products cause users, particularly if users weren’t made aware of potential health risks. When a product causes consumers harm, they have the legal right to take legal action seeking compensation for their damages.

Damages for someone experiencing Elmiron-related vision loss could include:

  • Loss in ability to perform routine tasks
  • Ongoing medical expenses for treatment and care
  • Loss of income due to vision loss
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Assisted-living services
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Feelings of isolation
  • Other forms of pain and suffering

These damages represent just some of the costs a person might demand in a claim against a drug manufacturer. When you meet with your attorney, you’ll work together to determine the extent of your suffering, so you can get a clearer picture of how much to demand in a lawsuit.

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
