Elmiron (pentosan polysulfate sodium)

Interstitial cystitis (bladder in ammation or irritation, also known as IC) is a painful condition that affects more than 1 million people in the United States, mostly women. Elmiron (pentosan polysulfate sodium) is the only drug approved in the United States for the treatment of IC. Elmiron is a weak blood thinner which also works as a bladder protectant, used to treat bladder pain and discomfort caused by cystitis (bladder in ammation or irritation). Recent findings show that one-quarter of patients who have taken large amounts of Elmiron had clear signs of eye damage.

 

Elmiron lawsuits claim the drug causes an eye disorder called maculopathy and other disorders of the retina that may lead to blindness. People who took Elmiron and suffered maculopathy or other serious vision problems maybe eligible to file an Elmiron lawsuit.

Claimants in Elmiron lawsuits accuse Janssen Pharmaceuticals of failing to properly warn the public about the risk of ocular toxicity and irreversible vision damage.

 

Research presented at the American Academy of Ophthalmology in 2019 revealed that patients taking Elmiron showed clear signs of toxicity.

 

The drug has been on the market since the late 1990s. It should be noted that all drug and medical device companies are responsible for delivering safe products and warning about potential risks; however, manufacturer negligence and aws in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval process may put millions at risk of serious, debilitating injuries. People injured by drugs and medical devices have a better chance of compensation when they turn to the legal system for help.
