I can’t see, my hands and body shake out of control…I’ve been a damn mess this past week. I did some Googling and learned that Ativan can cause vision problems. Since my double vision and blurriness started immediately after I began taking Ativan, I couln’t help but go “hmmmmm”. I couldn’t reach my pdoc so I did something I preach against doing all the time – I changed my meds without being advised. That was two days ago and yesterday I immediately saw an improvement in my vision. Again, I must say “hmmmmmm”.
My pdoc called last night and told me I did the right thing. Poor thing, I could hear the “where do we go from here” frustration in her voice. We meet today and hopefully can come up with a good plan. An option that allows me to see would be really nice.
I missed blogging myself, but reading others blogs has been even more frustrating. Since there was little I could do without being able to see, I did a lot of staring at the ceiling. For those who are wondering, unless you are on drugs, staring at the ceiling is not much fun.
