Doctor prescribed PreserVision to hopefully slow progression of disease in my husband's eyes. Dr. will retest in 6 months to see what effect, if any, it makes. Side effect: he has a dermatology issue that has been treated, unsuccessfully, by 4 dermatologists over the past 12 years.

I have been taking Ocuvite for over a week now and have experienced nausea and upset stomach. One day I decided not to take the Ocuvite for a couple of days and had no nausea or upset stomach.

My eye dr. Recommended this (meso z) form (22mg daily).after 3 weeks, I have heart palpitations, UTI, both verified by nurse practitioner! I am stopping them, going back (after a hiatus) to Ocuvite. Nasty stuff!
