Elmiron is a drug prescribed to treat Interstitial Cystitis, which is an ailment in the urinary tract system that causes abdominal and pelvic pain. Interstitial Cystitis is also sometimes referred to as Bladder Pain Syndrome and mostly affects women. The pain can be chronic or intermittent and the condition often leads to frequent urination.
Elmiron Side Effects and Injuries
Recent studies have found that patients who have been prescribed and use Elmiron have developed Maculopathy, an eye disorder that can lead to blindness.
Early symptoms of Maculopathy include:
- Having difficulty reading
- Difficulty of eyes adjusting to darkness
- Difficulty of seeing close objects
- Vision becomes dim

Medical experts are now recommending that patients who have used the drug Elmiron have an ophthalmic examination for early detection of maculopathy.
