> I have not used lorazepam more than a few times. However, I do know that it has the similar, obvious, effects of other benzos like alprazolam, which from my experience causes blurred vision ALL the time, when taken at a "higher" dose. A beer will cause the same effect, as far as distortion occurring in sight. Hydrocodone I have also had much experience with. HC does not, or did not, cause the "seeing double" syndrome associated with the benzos. I'd worry more about nausea . HC may certainly cause distortions of vision, but in a different way that I don't think I could adequately express. They are both addictive, mentally of course, and physically, the narcotic usually more severe. Conclusively, it would be highly improbable that a benzo doesn't blur vision. It depends on the dose, your metabolic/tolerance, other meds that counter-effect, etc. But if you need the higher dose, this is what ya get.
Thanks for your response. Actually, I found out the next day that it was actually neither the lorazepam nor the hydrocodone. I was taking hyoscyamine for irritable bowel syndrome. I was told that this was indeed a side effect. I later read that low to moderate doses dilate the pupils making it impossible to focus on nearby objects, which is exactly what happened. I could read fine the next morning, but while that was in my system I couln't read anything within 2 feet of my face. Thanks again for responding.
