Comments from related studies:
From this study (19 hours ago):
Of all the symptoms I have researched on this drug, slight dry eye and blurred vision is the only side effect I am having. It does not feel serious and goes away about two hours after dose if not reading or watching TV. Only concern is its listing as a "serious side effect", however research has come up with no reason for its severity. Will be discussing the symptom with my doctor, cautiously, so as to not be needlessly removed from a helpful medication; but want to make sure I'm not at risk.
From this study (3 days ago):
Dry eyes condition started after approximately 10 months on Forteo. Not sure if it's related.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Neck twitching with muscle spasms
MRI shows no signs of spondylarthropathy
sub centimeter vertebral lesions
