Yes It can cause many side effects such as blurred Vision, Dizziness and Drowsiness. I would talk to your doctor about it and ask he/she want they want to do. I hope this helps at least a little bit. Good luck!

It may take up to 14 days to feel like you are out of the clouds. So this is all a wait and see therapy.

Wish you the best.

I understand how you are feeling. When we switch meds sometimes these things can happen. Also, it could be a beginning side effect that hopefully go away soon. It went away for me. Give it a little time. If you continue to feel this way then I would talk to my Doctor. Hopefully it is a temporary effect of the switch. Best of luck. I hope this helps in some way.

Yes it is I was on them for 10 days and had that and other side effects. The reports say it can take up to 4/5 weeks to get used to this drug. What has your doctor advised you?? Speak to him if it continues, free discount card
