Anyone get diagnosed with severe Dry Eye syndrome from psych meds? If so, which meds were causing it? I have been on many the last year (when the problem was diagnosed) but my senses are telling me that it's either due to Levothyroxine (been on 3 years) or Lamictal (been on 1.5 years). I had perfect vision until a year ago - started to become noticeably blurry quite quickly, and so we decreased the dosage of my meds. But the Dry eye started getting progressively worse in the last 6 months. I went to an opthamologist 6 months ago and she was very worried, asked for all of the drugs I take. I had to get glasses and she gave me 2 different RX eye drops. I just met with her again and she said the problem is not much better. Switched my prescription to different/stronger drops 3x per (everyday) and this cream I have to put around my eye at night for 2 weeks, so they don't get infected. Can meds really screw up your eyes/vision over time? I don't want to start having vision problems! Sometimes in the morning, I wipe my eyes gently, and they are sore, like when you have a bruise on your arm and press on it? it's bizarre.
So I met a guy who I really liked. We went on a few dates, then I ended up spending the night last night. Once I got home, he texted me and asked me what medications I took this morning, which I was honest. He said that hasn’t scared him away, but he has been distant and stopped texting me. I know the answer, but it just makes me depressed how stigmatized we are as a community and I wish I never spent the night with him. I’m sorry for the long rant. Anyone else experience anything similar while dating?
