Hello dr
My name is***** was talking with you last week about my sore eye muscles and dizziness .I went into the emergency because my symptoms got really bad . The doctor there said that the seroquel that aim on was not causing me problems that my sore eye muscles were likely caused by a virus or an imflamation he gave me a referral to an ophthalmologist. He said to keep taking the teva betahistine and an inflammatory. My question to you is how long do you think this virus will last. Clint
Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

That is an excellent question. How long it lasts depends upon what virus it is that is causing you symptoms.

Dr. Rick :

That being said, I would not expect it to last more then a few months, at the very,very most....and more then likely things will get better sooner then that.

Dr. Rick :

in your years as a doctor have you ever seen sore eye muscles caused by a virus. do you think that the sore eye muscles are caused by the seroquel which i take for my depression clint

Virus infection can cause sore eye muscles.
No. I've never seen sore eye muscles from that medication.
Seroquel will NOT cause sore eye muscles.....
