What is Interstitial Cystitis a/k/a Painful Bladder Syndrome?

Interstitial Cystitis (“IC”) primarily affects women aged 30 or older1 and it is estimated that 2.7% to 6.5% of United States women have urinary symptoms consistent with a diagnosis of interstitial cystitis.2

According to the Mayo Clinic, IC signs and symptoms include:

  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • A persistent, urgent need to urinate
  • Frequent urination, often of small amounts, throughout the day and night (up to 60 times a day)
  • Pain or discomfort while the bladder fills and relief after urinating
  • Pain during sexual intercourse

Symptom severity is different for everyone, and some people with IC may experience symptom-free periods.

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, a division of The National Institutes of Health, explains that there are several tests a doctor can perform to diagnose IC and rule out other causes of pain in or near the bladder, urinary frequency, and urinary urgency.3

Our nationally recognized mass tort attorneys assist clients who are seriously injured by dangerous and defective products, and we are available to evaluate your potential claim against the manufacturers of Elmiron.

Robins Kaplan’s medical and pharmaceutical attorneys have the experience to take on big drug companies. Our team of attorneys, registered nurses, paralegals, and case assistants will thoroughly investigate your case, doing the following as needed:

  • Upon commencement of legal representation, one of our attorneys, legal nurses, or paralegals will call you and discuss your relevant medical history and prescription drug use.
  • We will order and review your medical and pharmaceutical records, and we will determine if you took a potentially harmful drug, and we will evaluate whether that drug hurt you.
  • Our pharmaceutical lawyers will compare the laws of your state with the timeline of events, including key dates in your medical timeline and dates of certain acts or omissions by the medicine manufacturer, and we will plan the best litigation strategy for your case.
  • We will investigate whether the drug manufacturer complied with FDA regulations and whether the manufacturer warned you about the risks and possible side effects associated with the drug.

Throughout the entire process, our legal team will keep you informed about your case.
