has anyone had eye trouble taking hydroxychloroquine
I take it but I’m not sure if I have eye trouble since I already wear glasses. My eye sight has gotten worse but I’m not sure if it’s from the medicine or not :/
I don't have glasses yet. but my eyes have gotten so bad since I started. now I need to see the eye doctor. because my doctor said that a side effect
I take hydrochloroquine for years since 2016 my eye sight is is good ive always had good eye sight though. I get tested every 6 months to a year for my eyes because the medicine can cause cataracts behind the eyes. Which is why I go to my eye doctor every 6 months to a year.
I hope its that it has been a while since I have been to the eye Dr and not the hydroxychloroquine or my lupus
I take hydrochloroquine for my lupus. I take 200 mgs daily.
I’ve heard of it as a side effect. I’ve been taking it since 2016. I’ve gotten tested every year and haven’t had issues. For sure get tested, and make sure it’s by a specialists an ophthalmologist. 👍
My eye sight has actually improved lol idk how. But my Dr won't continue to refill my meds unless I see the eye Dr at least once a year to be checked for any issues.
well definitely get checked out every year to make sure with your eye doctor and discuss you're conditions medications and concerns with your primary and make sure to have an eye doctor as well so they can find a problem if there is one. Have you always had bad or good eye sight??
