Elmiron is a medication commonly prescribed to alleviate interstitial cystitis (IC) pain and discomfort. This prescription drug protects the bladder and treats symptoms that accompany interstitial cystitis (IC). IC, also known as bladder pain syndrome, is a chronic condition in the urinary tract system that causes bladder and pelvic pain or pressure, a condition that affects millions of Americans each year, and it is often times mistaken for a UTI.
In recent reports, research states that taking Elmiron may result in Maculopathy – retina damage and vision loss. The side effects of Elmiron are being investigated in various scientific studies. Some Elmiron patients claimed they experienced the following symptoms:
- Blurred vision and difficulty reading
- Trouble with vision adjusting to darkness
- Eye pain and headaches
- Dimming of vision
- Paracentral scotoma or macular degeneration, vision loss in a spot of one’s field of vision
- An increase in farsightedness and vision distortion
If you or a loved one has experienced any of the symptoms listed above, while taking Elmiron, consider consulting a medical professional for assistance. Do not stop taking any medication without consulting a medical professional first.
With the number of Elmiron lawsuits escalating, patients claim that the maker of Elmiron, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, does not warn medication users of vision problems, vision damage risks, or the recommendation to get regular eyesight exams.
