Smith & Stallworth Aims Gets Justice for Victims Affected by Elmiron
Elmiron is the only FDA-approved drug to treat interstitial cystitis (IC) or “painful bladder syndrome.” Many people (mostly women) relied on this drug to ease their excruciating pain and suffered vision loss as a result.
In 2018, researchers linked Elmiron (pentosan polysulfate sodium, PPS) to retinal damage and toxicity. More specifically, doctors discovered a group of women with unusual changes in their macula (the part of the retina responsible for clear central vision) and realized Elmiron toxicity was linked to maculopathy, a serious eye disease that could lead to vision loss.
To make matters worse, the symptoms of toxic maculopathy mirror other eye diseases and vision problems, and the more Elmiron someone takes, the worse the condition can get.
If you take Elmiron, get an annual retinal exam and monitor your vision closely. If you begin to experience difficulty reading, especially in dim light, or worsened central vision, stop taking Elmiron and call one of our attorneys as soon as possible.
