MIAMI, Dec. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The pharmaceutical product liability lawyers at the Law Offices of Jason Turchin are investigating claims where patients who were taking Elmiron developed maculopathy or other eye disease. Several Elmiron lawsuits have been filed around the United States and are now being consolidated in New Jersey. Elmiron, used to treat chronic bladder infection called interstitial cystitis, causes eye problems according the several lawsuits and studies.
A recent study found a possible link between long-term PPS use and the potential development of a toxic maculopathy. In June 2020, Elmiron changed its label to warn patients of the risk of certain eye issues from taking the medication. Unfortunately, by this time many patients taking Elmiron already began suffering from maculopathy, and other eye problems.
