Elmiron (pronounced el-muh-ron) is a drug used to treat a rare condition called Interstitial Cystitis. Few drugs treat this condition. However, long-term use of Elmiron has been linked to vision loss and retinal maculopathy.
In 2018, the Emory Eye Center announced the discovery of a new disease called Retinal Maculopathy, which causes significant vision problems. In this study of 6 patients diagnosed with this new disease, all patients were women and each had taken Elmiron for IC. A second study conducted by the Emory Eye Center also linked Elmiron to maculopathy and recommended patience undergo comprehensive ophthalmic examinations. Further, an October 2019 Kaiser Permanente study identified 24% of its 91 subjects who took Elmiron for at least 5 years had retinal pigmentary maculopathy and vision symptoms. Additional subsequent studies from various health organizations also show a link between Elmiron and maculopathy.
