Side affects to Tamsulosin
I took Tamsulosin for 30 days and 80 days later I went blind. Diagnosis "temporal arteritis". I had many of the listed side affects of the drug. Are there other people who are blind after taking this drug? ## Hi Carl, Blurred vision is actually noted to be a side effect of Tamsulosin. The scary part is that blurred vision is also listed as an overdose side effect in addition to being a common side effect, so it may be difficult to tell how severe the side effect might be. Either way, due to the seriousness of going blind, this is something that should be called in to your doctor right a way if you experience it even for a brief moment. Additional information about this drug can be viewed in the links below: I hope this helps! ...
