I take seroquel xr 750 mg for my depression and anxiety could this medication be giving me the sore eye muscles that we discussed.

Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. How long have you been taking it?
Customer: I have been taking the seroquel for about three years
Doctor DanB : Eye pain has been reported in patients taking seroquel, as has glaucoma. While I have never seen a patient on seroquel that I could identify as having eye pain and/or glaucoma that has been directly caused by seroquel, it doesn't mean it can't happen. I think that's all the more reason to get that exam with the ophthalmologist to determine whether that's what's causing your symptoms or not.
Customer: Do you think that an exam by an ophthalmologist will be able to determine the cause , I would be so happy if he could and thank you so much. Clint
Doctor DanB : Yes, I really do. I think that is by far your best chance.
Customer: Thanks so much. You have answered my question. Take care. Clint
