Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
I took this drug for 5 weeks and then my vision blurred. I also had low sodium results from this drug.
Concerned friend on Apr, 15, 2014:
I have a 40 yr old friend who has been using Klima antiperspirant for the last couple of years. He swears by it but last year he tells me he can't play cricket any more because he can't see the ball. He is also now complaining of difficulty reading. In the research I have done no-one seems to want to make a connection between the use of a strong antiperspirant and vision problems. My friend preaches how good Klima is. I wouldn't like to be the one to tell him if it was the cause of his altered vision.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I have been choking on medication and food. I had a barium swallow test that showed a narrowing of the esophagus.
