What is the name of your depo medication?

Is your vision affected by this rolling of your eyes?

When do you notice it?

How long has this been going on?

Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?

I've stopped taking the depo now it's been nearly 2 months. It's called clopixal. It's been going on for 3 yrs now I notice it after I sleep for long hours my head feels bit heavy then that's when my eyes roll up. It goes up and stays up and I can't focus on anything just the sky and everything that's upwards.

Since this eye thing is transitory and only occurs at specific times the best thing to do would be to use your cell phone to take a movie of your eyes when they roll might need someone to take the movie for you.

With these documentary movies in hand you should then consult with an ophthalmologist. After doing a complete exam and reviewing your movies she will be able to pinpoint what is going on with your eyes.

Does this make sense to you?
