Comments from related studies:
From this study (8 months ago):
I feel a sort of confusion, slightly not with it, and frequently forget where I put things or why I went into a room etc. I am easily distracted from a train of thought. If I am shown a new process at work, I tend to forget quickly unless I have reinforced it in use for some time. Forget peoples names and the news my friends have told me. I find my thoughts flash from one thing to another if I am relaxing, so I then can't remember what I started with. Lose things frequently, but they do turn up. Can't find names eg plants in the garden even though I know them, but they will come back to me when I am not trying. I am concerned on a professional level because I am a pharmacist with obvious responsibility for safety.
From this study (2 years ago):
I want to know if celexa will cause a reaction to the drugs I have been taking
as I am suppose to start it today for fybromyalgia
From this study (3 years ago):
I was aware that Savella might cause blurred vision, but am shocked and... incredibly frustrated that the single most helpful ("legal") drug in my battle against fibro is causing such rapid deterioration of my eyesight. In June of 2010, I tested OU(Both eyes) 20/20. within the first couple of months,I experienced the "blurred vision," and not long after awoke to complete blackness. Throughout the day, it slowly returned. My vision began to "come and go," eventually becoming unreliable and requiring glasses. My initial Rx, in November of 2010, was (R eye)od -.75 and -1.0 OS (L eye). Currently, my lenses are (R)od -1.25 and -1.75 OS(L), and are no longer adequate.
