Customer Question
I have double vision...

I have double vision in one eye after taking tylenol pm for two months nightly would that cause double vision? and how long before it is out of my system?

Doctor's Assistant: The Doctor will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Doctor can help you best.

I started with a sinusitis, I took two rounds of Levaquin and Nasonex. I also wasnt sleeping and took tylenol pm nightly for two months. Now in one eye i have a blurry double vision when seeing far. is this from the medications side effects and how long until its out of your system?

Doctor's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?

Just how and when will this end

Doctor's Assistant: OK. Got it. Last thing - JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $32) to post your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi,

Vision changes can be associated with prolonged use of Tylenol PM however not so commonly.

Sinusitis,eye strain,refraction error,dry eyes are other possible differential diagnosis.

You should try refresh/lubricating drops.

Also take steam inhalation if you still have stuffy nose.

Avoid medicines.

And see your doctor for a clinical exam.

A referral to ophthalmologist can be advised.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.

Your satisfaction is our goal.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
