  • I had severe perinatal mood disorder at 6 months pregnant feb 2012 became impatient after a strong reaction to Paxil was switched to Effexor March 2012

    At daughters birth i was suicidal, utterly depressed, and extremely anxious was switched from Effexor to Zoloft 250mg may 2012

    My anxiety was horrendous and soon after (2weeks) I was put on Ativan twice daily 2 mg

    Still on Zoloft 250 mg and 2 mg of Ativan daily

    Had vision problems in early 20s except every time I had an exam my prescription was different.
    I gave up on glasses it suffer trying to drive at night and have a glare or like aura around lights.

    Never had this twitching eye before 2 months ago. It's very rapid, seems to be for no reason and my eyes dart back and forth involuntarily.
