I was given Ternormin as a betablocker to help mitigate to help my migraines. I don't think they are cluster migraines...but my sympathies to all of you out there who suffer from this, I thought mine were bad enough.
As AION (anterior ischemic optic neuropathy) may be caused by a sudden decrease in blood pressure, has anyone out there on antihypertensive meds, or beta blockers suffered visual loss? More specifically, has anyone suffered a visual loss while taking tenormim? I have been diagnosed with AION. I am 47, but this usually effects persons older than 65 or so. Please reply as the etiology (cause)has not yet been committed to. Unfortunately this can occur in the other eye. Thank you for your response. Julia
