retinal detachment as a medication side effect
Hi,

I have a cousin, 40 years old.  He got some medication and all of a sudden his whole body reacted to it.  His skin got a very bad rash and his vision is very bad now.  His doctors told him that he has retinal detachment.

he said that he now can see everything shorter and smaller than usual, he doesn't see the proportions right.  He almost loses his vision at night.  He is so despirate and doesn't know what to do.

Could you please let me know what you suggest for him?

I would really appreciate it.

Thanks,
Razool.

This sounds like a rather rare event. I believe your cousin would be best served at a
medical center familiar with these unusual conditions. He definitely needs a retinal subspecialist.

I recommend you find the exact name of the medication and condition so you can get more information.
