Experienced Trial Attorneys Fighting for the Injured
Elmiron Eye Injury

Elmiron® Vision Loss and Retinal Damage

Have You Suffered Eye Injuries from Elmiron®? Contact Our Team Today!

Elmiron® (pentotan polysulfate sodium) is a prescription medication used to treat interstitial cystitis (IC), which is a painful bladder condition that affects over 1 million Americans every year. In recent years, researchers have found an undeniable link between this drug and a rare degenerative eye condition called pigmentary maculopathy – and it is also the only known cause for this condition.

Leading to vision loss, eye strain, and even blindness with long-term use, Elmiron® is a dangerous medication that never should have been sold to the public. At Tate Law Group, LLC, our Savannah injury attorneys are committed to representing Elmiron® victims in lawsuits against the manufacturer, Janssen Pharmaceuticals. As dangerous drug attorneys with a track record of success in these complex cases, we have the resources and experience to help you seek justice.

If you took this drug for longer than 6 months and have experienced any of the following symptoms, we invite you to call our legal team:

  • Blurred vision
  • Difficulty adjusting to dim environments
  • Eye strain while reading
  • Loss of color perception
  • Vison loss (usually in the central field of vision)
  • Dark spots

Contact Tate Law Group, LLC at (912) 333-3915 today to schedule a free consultation. We are accepting cases across Georgia, and throughout the nation.

What Is Pigmentary Maculopathy?

In 2018, researchers first published a clinical study showing that there was a link between Elmiron® and eye injuries, which the researchers suggested could be a novel diagnosis. Often confused with other eye-related disorders like pattern dystrophy and age-related macular degeneration, pigmentary maculopathy is caused by toxicity in the eyeball. As toxicity builds over time, it degrades the retina of the eye, affecting color and light perception as well as clarity of vision.

Several later studies confirmed the 2018 finding, with one shocking study by Kaiser Permanente uncovering that around 25% of all patients who take Elmiron® will develop pigmentary maculopathy. Because IC is a chronic condition, most patients may have taken this drug over a longer period of time: A factor that can contribute even further to eye injuries.

How Can I Get Compensation?

Only one company currently has the right to manufacture and sell Elmiron®: Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of personal care giant Johnson & Johnson. Filing a dangerous drug lawsuit against a big pharmaceutical company like Janssen takes time, experience, and skill, but it is important to take action when your rights have been violated.

As a Savannah injury firm, we have represented many clients who have suffered injuries and illnesses due to defective pharmaceutical medications. When negligent companies fail to consider your safety by testing and screening drugs, our team at Tate Law Group, LLC can represent your interests throughout the legal process.
