Mirtazapine - Flashing lights

Posted , 3 users are following.

Has anyone else had the symptoms of flashing lights?  When I look over my left shoulder (not the right one), I get flashing lights, every time without fail.  Don't suppose I should be suprised, anything seems to go with Mirt' - but would welcome hearing from anyone - keep me sane knowing I'm not actually going insane - if you know what I mean !

    Calmer, I believe that I would see a neurologist about that one. When your turn your head your spinal cord twists in your cervicle vertebrae. When it comes to your vision, wait and "see" sometimes isn't a wise policy. There are too many things that can cause flashing lights to blame it on anything without tests to back it up. Just my 2 cents worth. GooD Luck, David

    I see lots of flashing lights at the weekend. But there again I was at an old skool rave so I suppose it's not quiet the same 😄.

    I'm quiet sure your not going insane though .

    Mirt does have some strange side effects.

    Thanks for your reply earlier (the good and the bad)

    Wishing you the best Richie

    Thanks guys, Richie I don't think it's from raving haha ... glad you had a good old rave up anyways!

    David hi ... feel sure it's the Mirt, the flashing seemed to start with the meds, but yeh, i'll certainly watch it carefully. I don't have to twist my head to get the flash just move my eyes left !!  Weird.

    Have a good evening guys, although it's early in the states David - are you UK Richie?  I'm in the Midlands.
