Please stop the patch if you can and see an ophthalmologist right away since this drug can cause glaucoma attacks in certain individuals. What you have described makes me worry that you could be at high risk for such a glaucoma attack. Tell the ophthalmologist exactly what you told me and ask him if it is safe to use the drug. I have an old dear patient that I have known for years, who is going on a cruise soon out of Port Canaveral near my house and she wants to use the same scopolamine patch. She is going to give it a test run tomorrow and see me at 2 pm to see if it causes any changes in her eye pressure.
Errrr stay away from the patch! No brainer here.
Thank you for your insight I see my PCP tomorrow and plan to discuss this indepth, I am a nursing student and have done my 'homework' on this medication but never of, heard in any literature, these side effects.
Would love to, however the benefits far outway the 'freak look', I have severe balance issues.Without the patch I bounce off the walls.
