I've been on subutex for 7 years now and venlafaxine for 5 years I have mixed feelings about them as I do feel they helped save my life at the time they were prescribed to me but I'm convinced they're also what's stopping me living a normal productive life now. Love/hate relationship.
I have had double vision now for about a week. I have read today that the use of prozac may cause this. Diplopia I have been taking 60 mlg a day for many years. I am 67 years old . I would like to know how to find out if this is the cause of my double vision or not. If it is the cause is there a recovery from it and how long does it take Thanks Tommy Latham
