Druginformer Identified Side Effects: Vision blurred

Effectiveness Rating:     Overall Rating:

Posted By Tracy on November 1, 2017 @ 7:47 pm

I took this to prevent motion sickness on a cruise. The third day, my vision became so blurred I couldn't see anything nearby. I couldn't read at all. After taking the patch off, my vision improved slightly but never returned to it's original state. My eyes were fine when I went on the ship, a year later and the problem has never went away. My eye doctor said it's likely from the scop patch, I've never had a problem with my eyes prior to this. It did great at preventing my motion sickness, but a permanent injury isn't worth it.

Additional Drug Information


* Warning: The facts and figures contained in these reports are accurate to the best of our capability; however, our metrics are only meant to augment your medical knowledge, and should never be used as the sole basis for selecting a new medication. As with any medical decision, be sure to work with your doctor to ensure the best choices are made for your condition.

* About FAERS: The FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) is used by FDA for activities such as looking for new safety concerns that might be related to a marketed product, evaluating a manufacturer's compliance to reporting regulations and responding to outside requests for information. Reporting of adverse events is a voluntary process, and not every report is sent to FDA and entered into FAERS. The FAERS database may contain duplicate reports, the report quality is variable, and many factors may influence reporting (e.g., media attention, length of time a drug is marketed, market share). For these reasons, FAERS case reports cannot be used to calculate incidence or estimates of risk for a particular product or compare risks between products.
