Hi there, I don't know if this is allowed on here or even connected, however I am just trying to get some advice and find people in the same situation.
My boyfriend started citalopram around 5 months ago, due to anxiety.
After 1 week of the dose he noticed that his eyes felt really sensitive and weird, he went to the doctors and they did the whole "it's just the medicine playing tricks on you" thing
After 3 weeks he decided to come off the tablets as his eyes were getting so bad that he couldn't cope.
5 months down the line and he's really in a bad way, he's been to the opticians, eye clinic etc.. and everything has came back normal.
Here are his symptoms
- too much light entering the eye ( everything is to bright and it's causing him to feel really uncomfortable in many situations now)
- he also says that he feels like there is a permanent "high" feeling.
- also very sensitive eyes meaning that they literally stream anytime we go out, they pour with water..
I'm really sorry this is long but there is no one helping and I'm so worried for him as he's only 21.
I have read this has happened from Citalopram before from 1 SINGLE dose.
Any help would be much appreciated
