Overdose?


Ok I told you guys that Gup and I went to the eye doctor on our anniversary right? Well I got some new glasses along with a new prescription. She gave me some eye drops for itchy eyes. With as many things as I am allergic to, my eyes tend to itch a lot. Well we fill the script the other day ,and I get to reading about it. It actually says you can overdose on the stuff. On friggen eye drops? How in the world would you overdose on an eyedrop? If you did ,what would it do ? Blind you ?I had to laugh at that .I am sure if there is someone out there that actually HAS overdosed on it, it would not be funny ..but man it is bizarre. It also says not to breast feed while taking them? Are you kidding me? I know women that drink while breast feeding and they are saying you can not put some drops in your eyes? Wow, I never thought about an eye drop making it to your blood stream . This goes down as one of those things that most certainly makes me go... HMMMMMMMMMM??????Has anyone ever heard of this before?

  4. You are not alone... lol. I just finished up a week on medicated eye drops for an infection yesterday.

    My medication has the same warnings. Plus, I had this same freak out when I saw it was also a topical steroid. *blonde moment* Am I going to gain weight using this? uh-huh--eye docs aren't very informative--it's all o nthe label thoough.

    Sorry about the long ramble--ironic coincidence. Hope your eyes are feeling better! :)

  5. My belief is, a lot of drug companies put on warning to cover their arse, not really knowing WHAT the effects may be. (It's not like they can drug test on humans for negative feedback)

    But then again, always better safe then sorry. Hope your eyes have gotten better Present Storm. And that you had a lovely Thanksgiving.
