Hello pupkin. I will answer the first part of your question. Yes, pristig causes blurred vision and is considered to be a normal as well as a common side effect. In clinical trials/studies blurred vision was reported as a side effect by 2 to 9% of users. As to it improving, I cannot say. My own opinion is that generally the longer a person is taking a given drug, the less severe the side effects, in as the body's chemistry adjusting to it. Regards pledge
Hi there -
I have been on Pristiq for almost 2 years now. started off on 50mg and was bumped up to 100mg last summer. Blurred vision has been - and continues to be a "side effect" for me - definitely gotten worse since I moved up to 100mg. I am currently in the process of trying to taper off this drug - side effects have really effected my life - and the depression which it seemed to help at first has now gotten worse. The discontinuation symptoms are pretty scary so I have scheduled an appt with and MD (next week) who can help me "taper down" in 10 percent increments. Ready to be off of this drug! And hope and pray I can taper off and manage my self with good nutrition , exercise and a new perspective on things ...
