Has anyone been having trouble with their eye sight. I think I'm experiencing far-sightedness (reading stuff is blurry, makes me nausous)...Is this a side effect I should be concerned about, ie, brain swelling? Do you know if there is a way for them to test if it is occuring, or if I tell my derm (on tuesday), will they just take me off?So recently I have been having trouble concentrating. There have been times where I have felt sort of cloudy in my mind, not right. I was worried I was having the mental side effects, but frankly, I was so depressed before tane, I don't think it can make it worse. But I think it may have something to do with my vision... suggestions? I have stopped taking my pills for about 2 days now just in case.....

Your question was: Anyone having vision problems due to Murad Resurgence?.

You should talk to your doctor about it. Your dermatologist isn't a neurologist. See if you have brain swelling then find out if it's as a result of Murad Resurgence and take it from there. Brain swelling isn't something to mess around with, you don't want an aneurism...

You did the right thing in stopping the drug, wait until you feel normal again before you even consider carrying on, I had the exact same problem... Don't go back up to the dose you were at again my friend.....

Comment #2

Did you keep taking it? Did the problems continue?I still have this inability to focus, even typing this is killing me... Everything looks like I'm wearing a glasses prescription way too strong... My glasses/ contact presecription always has seemed a bit off, but I've never felt like this.....

Comment #3

Brain swelling is a very rare side effect and I think when it occurs visual disturbances are supposed to be accompanied by severe, ongoing headaches. Before you jump to conclusions, remember that there are a host of eye-related side effects that are much more common and less serious that could be the cause of what you're experiencing. However, I'd certainly discuss this with your derm and make an appointment to see an neurologist. Better safe than sorry and all that...

Ya... Im wondering if it has something to do with changing my contact prescription about a month ago... though I hadnt worn my contacts much, and have worn my glass almost exclusively since starting tane...Or it could have been me going from literally, about 8 Diet A & Ws a day, to none? They have no caffeine, but thats a tough transistion, which I did about 2 weeks ago, when stuff started to come on.But don't you think it starting aroudn now may be indicitive of it being Murad Resurgence?..

Comment #5

Hard to say. I'm no expert. But for example, dry eyes are a common side effect and I'm pretty sure they can cause occasional headaches or visual disturbances. In my case, I started two weeks ago and I'm getting dry eyes. When I spend too much time sitting at the computer, especially in the evening, my vision may blur a little bit and if I ignore it for too long I can get headaches. So...anything's possible. :l..

I took Murad Resurgence 20 years ago and still have problems with my right eye. I have something called a facial paresthesias because of Murad Resurgence. The problem comes and goes but is always there. You see Murad Resurgence is still present in your liver even years after you stop the drug and every once in awhile it will get unleashed in to my system and give me this problem. Go look up the information on any search engine and you will find all kinds of bad things that Murad Resurgence can cause...

Comment #7

I am sorry you had a bad experience with Murad Resurgence.Murad Resurgence does not stay in the liver and does not 'unleash' in the system years after you've taken it.Call your derm, describe your symptoms. Don't take the Murad Resurgence. Ask your derm if you need a referral to a neurologist...

Comment #8

I also have visual disturbances with nausea occasionally. I started drinking a lot more water which helped a lot.& less caffeine helps too& Try cutting your dose& skip a days or so&..

Comment #9

Thanks for the responses guysSo the derms cut me off of tane. I stopped taking it last Saturday on my own accord, as I was growing very concerned. I saw my derm on Tuesday, and she referred me to an opthamologist. They couldn't find anything wrong with my vision (and no sign of brain swelling/ papall- adema (sp?). This was good, but I still didn't know what was going on.So I went to a general practioner, who couldnt find aythign wrong either. Im still dealing with this problem, I hope it just has something to do with dry eyes/ additional strain from all my school work/ stress/ my constant worry about my face.Ill be seeing my GP in another week, and if things don't get better, Ill probably see a neurologist.

A) Im off Murad Resurgence, have done every other treatment known to man, and am 20, so Im stuck with acne for a looooooong time. B) It could have just been dry eyes, so I maybe coulda still done my course? Though right now, my head doesnt feel quite right. Still have a brain fog of sorts, and still having vision problems. I really think it may just be dry eyes, in which case, I may have thought about re trying tane? But I think Im just a bit too worried it could be something else, I don't want to suffer permanent brain damage (if I havent already, ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!)..

You are most likely going to be completely fine without any residual problems whatsoever. Tell yourself that; it's more likely to happen. (I'm serious!) It could be that you're dehydrated. Please do drink a LOT of water. Use some lacrilube ointment at night when you're about to go to sleep. That will help the eyes recover some of their moisture.I seriously do think that so many of the side effects that people experience are a bit of a placebo effect.

I had dry eyes and dry lips. That's it...

Comment #11

I concur. In all likelihood it's either a placebo effect or has something to do with dry eyes. I'd meet with a neurologist, confirm that you're in good shape, and then get back on Murad Resurgence while keeping yourself properly hydrated...

What's a Piers Anthony? =P(I guess you can take that as a no, hehe)..

Comment #13

Hey Cubsin2100,According to the IPledge pamplet, vision problems ARE a side effect (and yet another reason why I'm totally freaked about taking Murad Resurgence now and still haven't begun). Here is what the pamphlet says word for word:Vision Problems - Isotretinoin may affect your ablility to see in the dark. This condition usually clears up after you stop taking isotretinoin, but it may be permanent. Other serious eye effects can occur. Stop taking isotretinoin and call your doctor right away if you have any problems with your vision or dryness of the eyes that is painful or constant. If you wear contact lenses, you may have trouble waearing them while taking isotretinoin and after treatment.

Check this out per the pamphlet.Serious Brain Problems - Isotretinoin can increase the pressure in your brain. This can lead to permanent loss of eyesight and in rare cases, death. (NICE!) Stop taking isotretinoin and call your doctor right away if you get any of these signs of increased brain pressure:- Bad Headache- Blurred Vision- Dizziness- Nausea or vomiting- Seizures (convulsions)- Stroke (hmmm, might be difficult to call the doc when you get this one!)I swear, I totally wanted to try Murad Resurgence to maybe for once in my life get a clear complection that would allow me to have higher self esteem but reading this pamphlet as swayed my decision. What other medications require a monthly blood test to monitor counts and levels? I think that is a scary sign right there. Good luck and glad you decided to stop on your own till you find some things out.

Oh well, better to be safe.GB2..

I agree alot of the time that can be the case, but I don't think people can truely understand some of the side effects and how they can occur, until they happen to them... You should know better than anyone that just because you took a high dose 10 years ago and were fine doesn't really mean anything in the grand scheme...And I disagree with saying that the synthetic vitamin A doesn't stay in your liver for many years, because it can and does.....

Comment #15

Thanks for the info... I saw a number of doctors, who pretty much said it wasn't it definately wasn't brain swelling. Im fairly certain it is either stress and/or dry eyes... Im still experiencing it about a week off of tane. I am actually considering going back on Murad Resurgence, assuming it's just dry eyes? I just bought a bunch of different articifical tears, to may see if anyone helps a great deal.The two concerns I have about starting agan: 1) What if it some other form of brain damage, or mental aspect that is causing these problems. 2) What if the dry eyes never go away...

Some say that some of their side effects never go away... so I am bit on the fence here... My acne is leading to crippling to me. It has such a huge impact on my life, it's not even funny. If I have to deal with it for another 10 years, I just don't know what Ill do....

Comment #16

Me too! I've been on 20mg a day for just over 2 weeks now and my vision is very odd (it was 20/20 before starting Tane). I sometimes get a rush of dizziness/light headedness which is a bit scary too...At the moment I'm just trying to ignore it...

Comment #17

Yepi had the same eye sinthoms that need to get and oftalmologic sinthoms dissapeared without changing in the treatment dose etcsee a doc I use contact lens, wish could be drying.but the sinthoms that time stick with me even without I used some solutions, and worked well...

Comment #18

Hey just to let everyone know I had the EXACT same problems as the original poster and my dermatologist has also removed me from Murad Resurgence for one month whilst I see an eye doctor to ensure that there is no corneal laceration from the dry eyes and more importantly no swelling of the brain or optic nerve.This said, I'm fairly certain this is all interlinked with a virus ive had and me being infront of a computer screen 24/7 on my final thesis.So yeah, it seems like if you are having really bad spacing-out and eye problems, you really should stop and see your derm to be safe...
