Start seeing double vision, left eye produces a duplicate image that is corrected by closing eye, will focus for short periods of time... Have tried eye drops and other things thinking maybe something was in my eye. Just started within last 2 weeks since I started adderall.
Heavy light yellow discharge no improvement after 2 diflucan treatments.
Mucous is difficult to cough up but I know it's there and it too is yellowish. Mucin ex, sudafed, or allergy medication has no effect.
