I've been on it for 15 years. My vision is being affected, although my retna looks good. I also have periferal neuropthy along with just feeling crappy. Insomnia too. I want off.
I don't believe so. I was on the highest dose for a few years when I developed central vision loss. My doctor had me discontinue it immediately, no weaning. He warned that it stays in your system for a really long time so the vision loss could continue to progress. I was fortunate in that they caught the vision loss early so it improved after a year off of the medicine. Best of luck!
