Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • No weight problems until started taking the pravastatin and the levothyroxine
    , started both meds same time


  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I presented with Retinal Vein Occlusion for no apparent reason. I am 62, healthy, just had a checkup of body and eyes with no problems. Got off of HCTZ as a precaution. The vein opened back up after the occlusion, which the doctor said was a miracle. I'm in agreement with the "miracle" from God. I had this happen around the first of June, and no other problems with my eyes since. I have Salzman's Disease on my eyes. Have had for 3 years or so. No correlation to this occurance. Please let me know if you see anything that could have caused this. Thanks


  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Can any of these cause eye floaters?
