Did Elmiron cause damage to your vision? If so, a Texas Elmiron claims Attorney at Steven Wright Law can help you go after the compensation you deserve for your losses.
Medical studies have shown that the long-term use of Elmiron can cause pigmentary maculopathy, an eye disorder that can cause blindness. Numerous doctors have since diagnosed many patients with the condition after taking the drug.
Patients are suing Elmiron’s manufacturer, Janssen Pharmaceuticals. They allege that the manufacturer failed to adequately warn patients about the drug’s dangers, including blindness.
If you or a family member took Elmiron and experienced harm, filing a claim will help you recover medical expenses, missed work wages, and other losses for your damage. Doing so also sends a broader message that it is never okay to put profits over people.
What is Elmiron?
Elmiron is a drug commonly prescribed to treat interstitial cystitis and osteoarthritis. The disorder most commonly affects females and can lead to tenesmus, which causes a sensation to use the restroom frequently.
Elmiron is the drug approved by the FDA to treat specific conditions. Though the manufacturer’s patent expired for the drug in 2010, the lack of alternative medications means that many patients will pay thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket expenses.
Janssen Pharmaceuticals has not explained the increasing costs of Elmiron, either. Nevertheless, the massive drug conglomerate stands to make growing profits as the market for interstitial cystitis treatments continues to expand.
What Are the Signs & Symptoms of Maculopathy?
Patients with maculopathy typically describe problems with their vision as the first symptom. Since other conditions can cause maculopathy, it is critical to receive a formal diagnosis from your doctor before you can file a product liability claim.
Other signs and symptoms of maculopathy may include:
- Trouble reading
- Difficulty adjusting to low light
- Problems seeing objects up close
- Dimming vision
- Partial vision loss
- And more
If you have experienced any of the above-referenced symptoms, consult with a medical professional as soon as possible. You should not ever stop taking prescription medications without talking to your doctor first.
