3 weeks in....

Posted , 4 users are following.

3 weeks in to taking 10mg - most side effects have started to lessen and I'm even sleeping a little better (hurrah!) however, I've noticed these past couple days that I'm sensitive to the light and my eyes just aren't quite right, not very good at focussing and I keep seeing lights! I've had my eyes tested and that was fine.

Is this common and does it take long to go?

One thing after another with these tablets!

    Yep, and we're terrible sensitive to everything our body is doing.  Are you suffering mild headaches but not linking that to your eyes?  I find a night of jaw clenching, headaches, then brings on achy tired eyes that are slow to focus and flip around!  It will pass but do watch out for jaw clenching, ve managed to damage teeth!

    I used to get different side effects, they'd wear off then find I'd get something else.  Each week it seemed something different as if I was going through the whole list til they'd all passed :-)  Sensitive eyes was another - the light hurt.  I've had flashing lights too and a weird buzzing - all gone now :-)

    id imagine if you've had your eyes tested and they're fine, it's probably the medication.  It should eventually pass :-)

      Oops I just posted and it disappeared! It might appear twice....

      I used to think 'jeez, what next'!  Don't know which side effect was worse!  I can laugh about it now but at the time it wasn't very nice :-)

      Yes keep plodding through ...... it'll all disappear eventually xxx
