Serious Eye Damage Associated with Elmiron

11:44 AM, Apr 15, 2020

Recent scientific studies have linked the medication Elmiron to vision-threatening eye damage. Elmiron is a drug that is supposed to treat bladder pain and discomfort from a condition known as interstitial cystitis. Unlike more common pain relievers that are taken as needed when pain arises, Elmiron must be taken multiple times a day on a regular basis in order to relieve pain. According to recent studies, this long-term continuous use of Elmiron is suspected to be causing serious eye damage.

New scientific articles are reporting that Elmiron may be toxic to the retina. The retina is the part of the eye that senses light and is critical to sight. According to one study, twenty percent of the patients with long-term Elmiron use had signs of eye damage. Examinations of these patients’ retinas revealed deposits of pigment around their retinas and retinal degeneration. It appeared that the patients who used Elmiron the most were also those with the most significant eye damage. These studies demonstrate that those taking Elmiron who have been diagnosed with age-related eye conditions such as macular degeneration, pattern dystrophy, or other retinal conditions, may in fact be suffering damage related to their long-term use of Elmiron.

If you or a loved one take Elmiron and are experiencing worsening vision or have been diagnosed with macular degeneration, pattern dystrophy, or other retinal conditions, contact Burg Simpson’s nationally recognized product liability attorneys [burgsimpson.com] in Cincinnati today.
