I have recently been suffering from double vision shortly after taking my medication, since having surgery on my stomach. Has anyone else suffered from this problem also.

Thanks for the info. I am still waiting for a response from my consultant, but because of the Corona virus it has been slow. My medication was increased a couple of months before the surgery but I didn't experience the side effects until after the surgery. Basically I wanted to know if the reduction in stomach size could have any effect.
