The potential risks associated with Elmiron were unknown until 2015, when doctors at Atlanta’s Emory Eye Center encountered an eye condition they hadn’t seen before in six women. This form of maculopathy didn’t seem to have a cause. Further investigation revealed that all six women had been taking Elmiron for years.
Further studies released in 2018 and 2019 further support the link between Elmiron and this eye condition.It is as yet unknown how Elmiron causes this condition.
Eye disease is still not listed as a possible side effect by the manufacturer, despite all the evidence. There’s no telling how many people have already suffered a serious eye injury due to their use of Elmiron, and hundreds of thousands of people are still putting themselves at risk.
