Seeing spots...HELP!

I started some medication yesterday, and my doc gave it the OK to take some Claratin too (one a day). I took it today right after my meds and I've been seeing these horrible spots all day long. It's starting to give me a headache. It's like after you look into a bright light. I can see if even when I close my eyes. What is going on??

  • What's the med? I'm currently on one that if I start to see anything different with my vision, I have to head to the ER immediately because it's a bad bad possible side effect.

  • Something called Pearle, it's for coughing and congestion

  • I'd for sure call in to your hospital or doctor, or even pharmacy if it's still open, and ask - it could be as simple as the drugs sending your blood pressure high but it could also be a bad side effect of the meds.
