Customer Question

Can you get sick from tilex vapors?
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: Only two: diovan for blood pressure and Restasis for dry eyes
JA: When was the last time you had your eyes checked? In general, how has your vision been lately?
Customer: I have 1/4 of 1% macular degeneration in my left eye only.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Not really. I bought tilex due to falls in the shower by my husband. It was advised as cleaner to allow rubber pad application to the shower floor. I could not read the miniature label thus did not know Risks of using the product.

How long were you exposed to the vapors? How do you feel now?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No more than 5 minutes. I feel okay and have opened all the windows and turned on fans to clear the air in the bathroom. I did not want to dismiss it without asking an expert for advice.

This is a realtively short exposure and should not be sufficient to cause illness, particularly if you are free of any underlying respiratory conditions. For additional guidance on this, you can call the American Society of Poison Control Centers anytime (24/7) at 1-***-***-****.
