    • I actually had a fair amount of success with SSRIs. It's difficult to say what the exact impact on visuals was but they certainly helped me deal with the anxiety associated with them.  For me anxiety always made things worse, and then over time the visuals have diminished likely due to being completely sober.  I have heard some people report that they directly effect their visual field so who knows.  We are all different, my advice is to stay sober and find a routine that works for you.  Eventually life will get better and your symptoms will diminish or at least become more manageable.   Take Care, Nick 
    • Understand, I'm not knocking the use of medications.  Some people in this forum have had success with them. Why don't I take any?  My symptoms aren't that bad at this stage in my life.  I still have visuals, but I can live with that.  I've had this disorder for over four decades and I've learned to adapt. Medications can have side effects and I'd prefer not to deal with that.  In general, I'd prefer not to introduce any medications into my body unless I need them to live (if I got cancer for example).  I've avoided blood pressure and lipid lowering meds through natural practices and life style changes. At this stage of my life, I'm happy and active.  I'm not going to take anything that could possibly derail that. This is my path.  I'm not suggesting that it's a better approach than anyone else's.
