    I have been on these tabs for about two weeks and i have done some research about there side effects, as far as i am aware these tabs do cause blurred vision... my adivise to you would be to get your friend to there GP or hosiptal, they might be able to determine what has happend and if it is the medication they can change it for your friend.... but my advise would be to get her to the doctors asap.

    Regards

    I am diabetic (insulin dependant for 35 yrs) and have been taking citalopram for around 3 yrs now. I have had blurred vision in one eye since taking it but i've been told it's because I have a blocked blood vessel behind the eye (it was perfect before I starting taking this medication?). Very interesting to hear that others have a similar problem
