The other day I was hanging out with some freinds, and my freind Kimba had told me that ur pupils are huge and looked dialated...Mind u I was flaring up, but I started noticing that even in the day light my pupils looks soo huge, could it be the meds.
IM taking Sulfasalizine, Vicondins, Diflinsal, Plaquenil, Colchine, Enbrel, and im also taking Laminsil to treat my horrible toe nail :(...
anyhoot other than that I think im ok for the most part...
so my question is should I be concerned???
thanks 4 listening

hey babz!
absolutely the narcotic meds will cause pupil dilation. that you need not worry about, it's supposed to happen, it's just what they do. but do keep your eyes protected from the sun & watch out @ nite if you drive as you might get a little blurry when seeing bright lights and all.
other than that...if your eyes don't necessarily bother you...than it's totally benign.
do you have RA? it's important to see the eye doc yearly if you do.
my pupils are quite large too. when my eye doc wanted to do that test where they dilate your pupils?...HE DIDN'T USE THE DROPS! hah...mine were already big is freaky...i get a kick out of it.

Are you seeing an opthomologist every 6 months? if you are on Plaquenil, you should be. My opthamologist said he has never seen a problem with Plaquenil with the dosages they give nowadays, but you can't be too careful even if the dialation is from the meds - well, maybe especailly since they are dialating, you should get them checked more regularly anyway.
