Long-term use of Elmiron, a drug used to treat the chronic bladder condition interstitial cystitis (IC), has been linked to possible eye issues, including retinal damage, vision loss, and blindness.
May 2022 Update: Over 900 Elmiron lawsuits have been filed since scientific findings were announced, and cases have been consolidated into multidistrict litigation located in the US District Court: District of New Jersey (MDL 2973).
There have been multiple attempts to put together a “science day”, but a date has not been established. The science day would entail plaintiffs and defendants both giving presentations, hearing from expert witnesses, and having the court respond.
The MDL was established on December 15, 2020.
Despite medical studies displaying tangible evidence of the danger presented by Elmiron, the drug has not faced a recall.
Elmiron is still available in the market though evidence has linked Elmiron to a number of adverse health risks including maculopathy, retinal damage, vision, loss, and blindness.
