Elmiron, which is widely used to treat bladder conditions, has been found to cause eye damage and vision problems in Rhode Island patients. Emerging research indicates that Rhode Island persons who have taken Elmiron (pentosan polysulfate sodium) for fifteen or more years are at significant risk for retinal damage. Additional Elmiron eye damage has been found to increase as the quantity of the drug increases. Hundreds of thousands of patients, including thousands in Rhode Island, who have relied on this drug for the treatment of interstitial cystitis (IC) were never warned of the risk of Elmiron vision loss or eye damage.
Elmiron is a product of Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. Elmiron received FDA approval in 1996 and is the only approved treatment for the interstitial cystitis, a bladder condition that affects a million Americans including many Rhode Island residents, most of them women. Elmiron's patent expired in 2010 but no generics have been developed and Janssen continues to raise the cost for this sought-after drug. Elmiron is the next in a long line of dangerous drugs and faulty medical devices marketed to Rhode Island residents by Johnson & Johnson, which includes Tylenol, Benadryl, Sudafed, Rolaids, Zyrtec, DePuy Hip Systems, pelvic mesh, Risperdal, Power morcellators and hernia mesh. Despite these significant drug problems and the fallout for millions of Americans, J&J's CEO garners annual compensation of over $20 million. Elmiron generates more than $150 million in sales each year on behalf of J&J. Meanwhile, residents of Rhode Island spend $600 or more monthly to purchase this dangerous drug.
Alongside millions of Americans, residents of Rhode Island are now learning that the drug they have relied upon for years to treat one problem was actually causing another: Elmiron vision loss. J&J faces serious questions from Rhode Island consumers and medical personnel as to why the public has never been warned of the risk for eye damage from Elmiron. Critics say J&J knew, or should have known, of this serious Elmiron side effect. Persons and the family members of persons in Rhode Island who suffered from Elmiron vision loss are filing Elmiron eye damage lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson. Filing an Elmiron lawsuit enables Rhode Island consumers to obtain the compensation they deserve for suffering, damage, medical expenses and loss related to Elmiron eye damage in Rhode Island. In addition, filing a Rhode Island Elmiron eye lawsuit claim is the best method for Rhode Island consumers to hold J&J accountable for its unethical business practices.

A painful bladder condition, IC affects approximately a million Americans, including many Rhode Island residents, most of them women. Elmiron is the only drug approved to treat IC at this time, and consumers and doctors alike in Rhode Island trusted the drug as safe.
