Some anti-psychotic medications that are used to treat patients with certain types of mental illness can aggravate glaucoma in certain patients with narrow angles as noted on the Perret Opticians website. Examples of these medications are thioridazine and chlorpromazine. Patients with open-angle glaucoma may not have problems with this medication but should still follow up with the eye doctor.
I have high blood pressure in both eyes - I will be seeing an eye doctor (Ophthamologist) in a couple of weeks.
I guarantee you that Risperdal has something to do with this - I also suffer from diabetes triggered by psych meds - diabetes can trigger Glaucoma - I hope to God that I dont have Glaucoma - this is all I need
I read that Seroquel caused cataracts in beagle dogs when it was being approved.
My last exam, they said I have some. It just makes you need more light to read a newspaper for instance. But my Dad had cataracts that had to be removed so maybe heredity too.
But I’ve been on Seroquel for over 15 years now and glad it’s generic now.
