reports tie elmiron to eye damage

Elmiron is a medication used to treat a painful bladder condition known as interstitial cystitis. It can also be used as an anticoagulant and to treat osteoarthritis. However, health officials linked the bladder medication to causing a serious eye condition that can lead to blindness.

Researchers discovered Elmiron caused patients to experience eye damage called maculopathy, or a condition that affects the center part of the retina. This area of the eye relates to one of the most sensitive parts of vision, so damage to this area can cause severe eye disorders and even blindness.

are you experiencing these symptoms?

A study released October of 2019 stated that out of 91 patients that took large amounts of Elmiron over the years, 22 of them showed obvious signs of retinal toxicity. The amount of toxicity rose with the amount of Elmiron taken. Overall, one quarter of the patients who took large quantities of Elmiron over the years had clear symptoms of maculopathy.

If you are showing signs of eye damage, speak to your doctor immediately about discontinuing Elmiron or finding a replacement medication.

elmiron lawsuits


If you took Elmiron for your bladder condition and were diagnosed with eye damage, you may be a victim of toxic Elmiron medication. Through the Food and Drug Administration Adverse Reporting System (FAERS), the FDA reports that between 1997 and 2019 there were 100 cases of Elmiron patients diagnosed with eye disorders.


Elmiron's manufacturers list a number of side effects from taking the medication, including headaches, skin rash, sleep disorders, etc. However, eye damage was never listed on the product's packaging as a side effect. 

Because they failed to warn individuals about the risk of being diagnosed with maculopathy, Elmiron manufacturers are responsible for the injuries of patients across the country.
