Hi everyone I am new to this community and desperately trying to get my head around my macular oedema !!! I have just had my fourth Eylea injection and have been advised by my consultant to keep a check on my blood pressure in order to prevent pressure being placed on my blood vessels in my eyes.
In addition to my eye problem I have several life stressors, beaveament of Close family member and recovering from skin cancer, resulting in being diagnosed with depression . Yesterday I was prescribed with an antidepressant Sertraline 50 mg , however after reading the leaflet I am concerned as it can cause a raise in blood pressure and problems with eyes!! Has anyone else taken these or any other antidepressants whilst receiving treatment?
Sorry about the long post but feeling confused and nice to share issues with people who understand the challenges of living with this disease.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas
