Last night my wife asked me if I was on drugs in a joking manner, as she told me my pupils are very constricted. I let it go, however got up this morning and my pupils are still constricted, they are not changing due to light change. No I do not do ANY illegal drugs....should I go a few days before having it checked? My vision seems absolutely fine
No I dont take any pain meds. However Im on two medications one is sertraline 100mg/daily, then as needed Lorazepem. Which I took two of those on monday.....The constricted pupils started sometime on tuesday
Hey sorry justaguy33....I was typing while you were typing.
I read now that you are on an AD and a benzo.....when you read the precautions for lorazepam, one of the statements is to be sure and tell your dr if you have glaucoma (narrow angle, I believe)....so it's possible that a change or intake of the benzo could affect your pupils accordingly.
I was on the very same meds you are on at one time in my life, and yes, I had pupil changes. While taking the meds, my vision was GREAT too.
It's when I went off ALL of them that my pupil size changed and my vision got blurry for awhile. Just a guess, but it's probably the lorazepem affecting your pupil dialation.
