Blurred vision

Talk about meds, side effects, and the 'med-go-round'.

Hey all. I'm having a side effect of blurred vision from my geodon. It is extremely annoying. Does anyone know if this is concerning and if I should call my pdoc or if I should just wait for this to go away?

Have you just started the Geodon, or increased the dosage lately?

I would say wait a day or two and then, if nothing has changed, call pdoc.

Best wishes. :)

I know you always hate to call your docs, LH.....but that's what they are there for. And I know you don't feel as though you're worthy of 'bothering' them but you are. Especially for something like this.

It obviously started with the increase in Geodon and you need to let them know, ok? I have no way of knowing, but maybe the dose is too high. They are the only ones who would know.

So call tomorrow, ok?
