Has anyone on Prozac every had any vision issues. My eyes are not blurry but they don't feel right and I'm not seeing like I used to. Everything is a bit off. Will this pass? I increased dosage last week to 40 for anxiety. Please only positive feedback.

      Anxiety is horrible and no one that dosent have it understands at all. I used to have it when I was younger and went on Prozac then. I had zero side effects. I went off of it for a few years and then I had a major panic attack that threw me into constant anxiety. I'm in week five now and my vision issues are giving me more anxiety. Everyone says keep with it and it will pass. I sure hope it does.

    Hey y'all! I started 40mg yesterday from 30mg just because I felt I could use one more dosage. But YES I know EXACTLY how you feel vision wise. It's off , not blurry, but not right. I've noticed mine has decreased since upping to 40

    Ye I agree people that have never had it can't understand what us lot go through..

    I was originally on paroxatine for 3 years and then they stopped working so I was changed to mirtazapine which gave me really bad chest pains and bad reaction and ended up in hospital .

    After that I was changed to sertraline and propanalol but again I had bad reaction to these and was in hospital 3 days with breathing problems.

    I had panic anxiety before this but those two episodes of been hospitalised has thrown me in to constant anxiety about my breathing and heart..

    I started prozac 8 weeks ago on 20mg and 2 days ago was upped to 40mg. So I'm hoping this dose will sort me out and all side effects will subside.

    I really hope so as I'm losing the power to carry on with this

    Yes, I did. It's not mentioned much, and it was subtle but I noticed I just couldn't see sharp like I used to, could get the right distance from the computer and in the mornings it took a while to wake up. It did go away, so I think it was a prozac side effect for me, or maybe depression, I do t know, I just know it got better
