Elmiron (pentosan polysulfate) is used to treat interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome, a chronic condition causing bladder pressure, bladder pain and sometimes pelvic pain.
Although Elmiron has proven to be effective at stopping bladder pain, studies have increasingly found that it may be linked to damage in the retina of the eyes. One study found that about a quarter of people taking Elmiron for five years or more experienced significant damage to the retina. The study also identified that increased exposure to the drug was associated with more severe atrophy.

A class action lawsuit is qualified if it is brought collectively by a large number of people who harbor the same legal complaint against the same defendant. Products liability is a common area in which class action lawsuits are commenced.
Although each case is different, a typical class action will take at least 2-3 years. But assuming there are no further appeals, class members generally receive payment about 6 to 9 months after a settlement agreement is submitted to the court for preliminary approval.
