Hmmm. Every time i take my dose - I still have about a week's worth - I feel within 5 or 10 minutes, a drying in the area of my tear duct. This was especially noticeable the first time I took the drug, and it was wihtin 5 or 10 minutes that the pink eye showed up. It was not a gradual appearance either. 1 minute I am suddenly looking through a right eye which is hazzy/foggy, then I see mucus droplets in the eye. It was uncanny.
I should also note when I called my MD about this, he seemed flumuxed and suggested I go to emergency immediately. I was shocked and asked him why. He hemmed and hawed and said something about hoping it wasn't my heart. I could not believe this was necessary. My heart rate was normal, nothing else was happening that I could feel to warrant such a panic. I need a new GP!
Anyway - a discussion with a local optometrist led him and I to beleive it was likely just pink eye, and the oral drug should knock this out, but I could also use topical polysporin for a few days to help - I am doing this.
So - at least you believe I have nothing else to worry about? My infection is subsiding in both the eye and sinus area. There is quite the massive load of side-effects on the web pertaining to this drug, so I am hoping I am not missing anything. Other than some mild headaches, I have been sympton free so far - no rashes, aches, etc.
