Elmiron Lawsuits
Some side effects were not known until as recently as 2015, where six women were diagnosed with eye conditions at the Emory Eye Center in Atlanta. The cause was later to be revealed as Elmiron, as all women were taking the drug for several years. Many more studies have come to light and have shown that there is a correlation between Elmiron and eye damage.

Several lawsuits claim that Elmiron did not disclose the symptom of vision damage. It is alleged that Elmiron has admitted that only a fraction of the drug resolves in the bladder, with the balance absorbed elsewhere, including epithelial cells that coat the retina.

What is Elmiron?
Elmiron is a brand name for pentosan polysulfate sodium (PPS). Elmiron is a type of blood thinner that is commonly prescribed for bladder pain or urinary disorders. It is most commonly used to treat pain or discomfort of painful bladder syndrome, or interstitial cystitis (IC).

Elmiron symptoms include:
• Vision loss
• Difficulty adjusting to dim lighting
• Difficulty adjusting to darkness
• Difficulty reading
• Blurred vision
• Vision dimming
• Eye pain

File Your Elmiron Claim With An Experienced Attorney
Millions of women have been taking Elmiron for several years since it is the only FDA-approved drug for treating IC. Many lawsuits have been filed, but many people taking Elmiron may be unaware of the connection between vision problems and the drug.
