 I was wondering if any one has heard of 6mp affecting eye sight?
my vision does not seem to be as good/clear when I am on this medication.
has any one ever heard about this as a side affect of 6mp?

Thanks.
Walt

I took it for 4 months and didnt have a problem with my eyes, altho before I was diagnosed I had uvetis (inflammation) in my eyes from the crohns (just didn't know it yet) They felt sore, especially when I rubbed them and my vision was blurry, you should go to the eye dr and have them look at your eyes thru a slit lamp exam and they can tell u if it is from inflammation. Hope this helps!
