I woke up from a nap yesterday and for about 2 hours i could not see, my vision was so blurry i couldn't even walk. My mom said my face got swollen and my eyes were very very red. I was hysterically crying and having panic attacks because i felt like i was going blind :( i was Rushed to ER and was told it was not a reaction to my amitripyline (meds) and its a symptom of Trigeminal neuralgia or a warning sign...Has anyone else ever been through that? OMG it was so scary and i diddnt know what to do, thank god my mom and grandma were home. I'm scared to drive now. Waiting to go see a doctor tom or Tuesday...any support or knowledge is appreciated..<3 you guys!
I had very blurry vision as a result of taking lamotrigine. I had taken my first dosage an hour and half before this started happening. I then become very dizzy, started losing control of by body and had difficulty talking. I was taken to the ER where I stayed while they monitored these side effects. It took about 48 hrs before I was back to normal and had it out of my system. I don't know if your meds have any of the same ingredients as lamotrigine, but the blurry vision did happen to me and was a really frightening experience.
