Blurred vision and Trazodone

I am currently taking 50mg of Trazodone at night and 150mg bupropion SR (wellbutrin) twice daily. I have recently noticed that I am having a difficult time seeing the satellite menu on the tv from across the room. I also get headaches when I watch tv for more than an hour. I thought I might just need glasses, but I'm thinking it's a side effect from Trazodone.

Has anyone else experienced blurred vision on either Trazodone or Wellbutrin? Is there anything I can do to reduce the effect? I need to keep taking something to help with anxiety and the wellbutrin induced insomnia, but I'm afraid of gaining weight on something else (i.e. Remeron).

Re: Blurred vision and Trazodone

I take Wellbutrin XL 300mg daily and there is something about distance and too much light that will cause my vision to go blurry. I catch myself blinking alot as in trying to refocus. Mind you I also take a bunch of other meds so it could be one of them, the one we do have in common though is Wellbutrin

take care
