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.

    Due to a personal injury accident, not my fault, I needed to find a lawyer to help me with my case. I chose Ponce Law due to TV advertising and proximity to my home. Throughout the process they were helpful explaining steps being taken. They were helpful in reducing some of the subrogation expenses which ultimately put more of the settlement in my pocket. Thank you to David Wyatt & Taylor Desmet for their assistance throughout this process.

    I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!

    I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
