Ocular migraine

Recommended Posts


I’m withdrawing from both Effexor / venlafaxine and Wellbutrin / bupropion for 4.5 and 2.5 months respectively. I’ve had occasional ocular migraines for decades. Wedge-shaped visual disturbance that starts in center of my vision, then gets bigger as it moves off to the side and disappears in about 20 minutes. Sometimes a very minor headache follows but no pain otherwise. I’ve noticed that since the several withdrawal symptoms started, I’ve been having ocular migraines more frequently, though not every day. Doctors have always told me not to worry about them. But might the greater frequency be a known symptom pattern in withdrawal?
