Elmiron (pentosan polysulfate sodium) is a drug that is prescribed to treat interstitial cystitis or painful bladder syndrome. It is commonly taken for a long period of time because there is no cure for these bladder conditions. The drug has been linked to the following serious vision-related conditions:
In the United States, macular degeneration is the #1 cause of blindness.
Has Elmiron Been Recalled?
No. Despite the growing number of studies associating Elmiron use to potentially permanent vision damage, its manufacturer, Janssen, continues to distribute the drug. And it had failed to issue any communication about the danger of taking the drug.
The company didn't add a macular degeneration warning to Elmiron's label in June 2020.
