Understanding the Elmiron Lawsuit


Hundreds of people have filed an Elmiron Lawsuit after consuming the drug. As it turns out, Elmiron can cause harmful effects to your body. If this medicine has harmed you, you are eligible for filing a case.

Why are people filing lawsuits?

Elmiron is a pharmaceutical brand name for pentosan polysulfate sodium. It is a drug used to treat a condition known as interstitial cystitis or painful bladder syndrome. As is understood by the name, it is used to treat bladder pain caused by inflammation or irritation.

Elmiron was a leading choice to cure cystitis for many. However, the drug is also suspected to be causing eye damage and vision loss among its users. In the years 2018 and 2019, authors had published various articles about Elmiron patients experiencing pigmentary maculopathy.

Maculopathy refers to a macula disease, a tiny spot in the center of our retina that helps us see things clearly and in detail. The form of macular degeneration associated with Elmiron is called “pigmentary maculopathy” and has no known cause.

People are filing lawsuits to get compensation for their eye injury and for being put at risk.

Illness and side effects caused by Elmiron:

Significant consequences of taking Elmiron would include eye damage and permanent vision loss. Even if you do not lose your eye, you may experience a few of these side effects.

  • Hair loss
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Bruising
  • Diarrhea
  • Heartburn
  • Mood swings and more

You are likely to have eye damage if you experience the following symptoms after taking Elmiron.

  • Difficulty reading
  • Distorted vision
  • Blurred vision
  • Eye pain
  • Issues in adjusting in the darkness

If you have taken Elmiron and are undergoing any of the effects mentioned above or symptoms, you are strongly recommended to visit your doctor and discontinue taking the drug.

How much are Elmiron lawsuit settlements?

The compensation will depend on how significant the injury is and several other factors; therefore, it can vary from person to person. One can expect the settlement to be anywhere between $10,000 and $500,000. Again, it depends on how significant your injury is and how other things in your life are affected.

For example, when you fall sick, you miss work and thus lose wages. In injuries like this, there are possibilities of you never returning to work and losing your career, which will further affect you and your family significantly. Therefore, the compensation should cover not only your hospital bills but also other economic losses.
