    Has anyone had vision problems when taking ivermectin? My husband has been taking it for a week since he’s traveling and this morning he is having trouble focusing distance.

    This is barbara74, adding to my previous post. I wanted to know how long vision problems last once you’ve stopped taking ivermectin.

      I usually get a little bit of weird vision stuff (just a bit of blurriness with distance) the first day I’m on ivermectin. It clears up in a few hours for me.

    I have developed white spots in my lips – discoloration of lips in a couple spots – I am curious if anyone knows if I should be concerned and if it will go away. It has been three or four days since I took Ivermectin.

    Hi Barbara, visual disturbances are a possible side effect of ivermectin, that would warrant stopping the medication. The visual disturbance should be transient and resolve once the medication is stopped. You can go to the flccc website and find a provider who can guide you on other options fo what you are using IVM for.

    The safety data sheet that comes with IVM has vision issues as one of the possible side effects. It may just be an issue with the dosage. I believe I remember Dr. Kory recommending taking a smaller dose and/or less frequent and seeing if the vision issue goes away. Then add back to the dosage gradually over time. If that doesn’t help then seek another nutraceutical.
