Valerie Hull has filed a personal injury lawsuit against the manufacturers of the prescription drug Elmiron. Elmiron is typically prescribed for the treatment of bladder pain and is also prescribed – albeit less frequently, for osteoarthritis.
Hull began taking Elmiron continuously from 2001-2018. Consequentially, Mrs. Hull suffers from severe visual injuries, including changes in eye color pigment, severe vision loss, loss of night vision, and pigmentary maculopathy.
Dr. Nieraj Jain, an ophthalmologist in Atlanta, performed a study based on Mrs. Hull and five others who displayed the same eye injuries but only shared one common medication: Elmiron. Since the study, researchers and physicians have concluded there is an association between Elmiron use and an increased risk of visual complications.
It is estimated that hundreds of thousands of patients have used Elmiron. The drug continues to be sold without any warning label regarding potential vision complications. In some studies, up to 24% of Elmiron users have been found to have unique eye damage caused by the drug.
If you or a loved have been prescribed Elmiron and have experienced any visual complications, you should contact a personal injury lawyer immediately.
