Comments from related studies:
From this study (8 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 (2 days ago):
Symptoms worsened after I stopped taking it
