Elmiron Vision Problems

Hundreds of thousands of Americans have taken Elmiron, also known as pentosan polysulfate sodium, to relieve pain and discomfort from interstitial cystitis since 1996. In June 2020, manufacturers added a warning to Elmiron’s prescribing information because several studies linked long-term use to pigmentary maculopathy, a degenerative eye disease. Elmiron has not been recalled and remains on the market. Drugwatch’s guide explains how Elmiron could expose users to unacceptable risks and tells you how to take legal action if you developed vision problems after taking Elmiron.
