The Manufacturer Knew of the Link Between Elmiron and Eye Damage

While the medical community has only recently learned of this connection, Elmiron’s manufacturer Janssen has known of the link between Elmiron and eye damage for over 20 years.  In early clinical trials of patients who took Elmiron for up to four years, both vision and eye related adverse events were reported.

Although Janssen knew of the link between Elmiron and eye damage for more than 20 years, the company never added warnings to the label or conducted further research on the link between Elmiron and eye damage. Instead, they ignored the risks and went on to earn billions of dollars selling Elmiron.  Now they are facing thousands of lawsuits from patients that suffered severe eye damage.  If you have taken Elmiron and experienced eye damage, contact us today.
