- Are there any long term effects of the blurred vision side-effect?
I woke up at 10:45 with some cramping. After about 30 minutes without relief I took Miralax and Ibuprofen together. I went to work at 3 and moved heavy boxes for about 2 hours with minimal cramping. I ate a normal lunch/supper and went to bet at 10:00 PM. I got out of bed at 10:30 to get a drink and realized after having been back for a while that I was having trouble seeing the digital clock. I got back out of bed at 11:30 and went to get a drink. After entering the kitchen and putting my glasses on I realized that I couldn't hardly see the clock. It got slightly worse after that to the point that I was seeing double vision in my left eye (with my right eye closed). It is almost gone now.
Other Relevant information: I have a lazy eye (my right). I have more than higher than average blood pressure.
