Thousands of Americans have taken Elmiron, also known as Pentosan Polysulfate Sodium, to relieve pain and discomfort from interstitial cystitis, since 1996. However, in June 2020, the manufacturers added a warning to Elmiron’s prescribing information as several studies have linked long-term use to pigmentary maculopathy, a degenerative eye disease.

Who makes Elmiron?

Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a division of Johnson & Johnson, manufactures Elmiron. However, it was originally developed by Baker Norton Pharmaceuticals, Inc. The FDA approved Elmiron in 1996 for interstitial cystitis and it began being sold in the USA in 1997.

How soon can vision issues occur?

According to Drs. Adam M. Hanif and Nieraj Jain, vision issues can occur any time after 3 years of Elmiron use. These visual issues can last for years, and some may be permanent. 

Have you suffered any side effects after taking Elmiron?

If you have been diagnosed with pigmentary maculopathy or experienced any side effects after taking Elmiron, you can get financial compensation by filing a vision loss injury claim. 

Researchers at Emory University investigated the early clinical trials of the prescription from back in the 1990s. Consequently, they found that around 2,500 patients taking the drug for up to 4 years had serious side effects, such as vision problems. 

Criteria to file an Elmiron lawsuit

  • Elmiron patients who have used the prescription medication for at least two years. 
  • Elmiron patients who have been diagnosed with eye disorders or vision problems.
