Elmiron lawsuits have been filed against Janssen Pharmaceuticals, by plaintiffs who had vision problems that could cause blindness or maculopathy.
Plaintiffs claim that long-term use of Elmiron an interstitial cystitis medication, caused their vision problems and is dangerously defective. Janssen withheld adverse events reports from the medical community, the public and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, according to lawsuits.
Janssen should pay compensation to people who have filed lawsuits for permanent vision impairments.
Elmiron Patients File Suit
Janssen was sued by people in 2020. Jeanette Milburn and Valarie Hull were the first to file lawsuits against Janssen. Kimberly Pelczar was also involved in three of these cases.
Three women claimed that long-term Elmiron usage caused vision loss, pigmentary maculopathy and retinal injury. Janssen did not warn them or their doctors about the danger of permanent vision damage, and Elmiron was a defective product.
Janssen was facing 1,360 cases at federal court by June 15, 2022.
