I took buscapan for my IBS and had a rash round my left eye with a headache and some blurring in that eye, headache and rash now gone still slight blurr, never had reaction to tablets before, bit worried
This is Dr. Davidhave you taken buscopan before? was this the first time you had this type of reaction?if you have taken buscopan before without these side effects, your symptoms of rash and headaches may not have been due to it.

I see.did you drink alcohol when you were out? that can cause headaches and rash as well.

I don't drink only had tea, vision in left eye is still bit blurred after 11 hours
are you having runny nose? tearing of your eyes? allergies can cause sinus headaches, rash and tearing and mucus in the eyes and blurry vision.

One of the side effects on tablets was red eye which could cause glaucoma that's what has me worried
glaucoma would not cause headaches like this.

The headache has more or less gone as has the red rash round eye I stress anyway due to the ibs I have that's why I took the buscopan
I need to try to stress less.

I do tai chi for that, just worried that the side effect of tablet has done damage to my eye with it still being blurred tho can read things close
the tablet would not damage your eye
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
So the blurring should clear up then as it wasn't blurred til the rash started?
the blurring will clear up for you
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Phew, where the rash was still feels warm but I guess after 12 hours the tablet should be through my system
yes, it should be out of your system.
