... doctor getting off it slowly. - about a week ago I went to the optician and was confirmed to need glasses for the first time in my life, but the optician also mentioned that my antidepressives might affect eyesight abit and I should come back when I'm off the medicine. - my doctor has never heard of this and could not help me with the question I am about to ask: - how long after completely stopping citalopram can I safely assume my eyesight is no longer affected and get the right strength of glasses? - I currently have a set on hold at the store and would like to get them sooner rather than later, but not waste money on the wrong strength if citalopram truly does have an affect on my vision!
