Has anyone had visual disturbances due to their medication?

I have been taking lithium for years and in September of 2019 I started to take 150 mg of Lamictal. In December of 2019 I started to see a blue circle in left eye whenver I blink that is now in both my eyes as well. Every so often everything turns ppink in my left field of vision also. I went to the eye doctor and they said my eyes are healthy and it is mostly neurological possibly due to my medication. I was just wondering if anything similar has happened to you guys? #visualdisturbances #BipolarDisorder #Lamictal #lithium


Have you had to stop driving due to your condition? If so, how are you coping?

I went from driving EVERYWHERE to barely being able to make it down the street to the pharmacy. If someone told me a year ago that I'd be as "dependent" as I am now I wouldn't believe them. In literally just over a year I've had to make so many changes due to my multiple chronic illnesses. I have increasing difficulty doing some of the simplest things like showering, getting dressed, cooking meals... (the list goes on) but I never expected or even thought about not being able to drive myself. Due to the unpredictable attacks associated with my Ménière's it's not safe for me to drive.. but even riding in a car is difficult because I now get car sick so easily and if it's a long ride I suffer due to my chronic pain.
