If you suffer from the bladder condition known as interstitial cystitis (IC), you’ve probably been prescribed Elmiron as a treatment. Unfortunately, prolonged Elmiron use has been linked to an increased risk of eye damage, including pigmentary maculopathy, a retinal disease. If you’ve suffered vision problems after using Elmiron, you could be entitled to join one of the defective medication mass tort lawsuits currently ongoing against Elmiron’s manufacturer, Janssen Pharmaceuticals.
In order to be eligible to join an Elmiron lawsuit, the following must apply:
- You must have used Elmiron for at least two years
- Your vision changes and side effects must have begun while using Elmiron, or within one year of stopping use
Eye symptoms following Elmiron use can include:
- Blurred or distorted vision
- Difficulty reading
- Macular degeneration
- Pigmentary maculopathy
- Retinal maculopathy
- Vision disturbances
- Vision loss
If you’d developed any of the above symptoms while using Elmiron, you could be eligible for compensation. Call the mass tort lawyers at Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys at 888.501.7888 for a free legal consultation today.
