Dilated pupil, blurred vision after using scopolamine patches for motion sickness, numbness over eye area. Cause and cure?

Hi.. I use scopolamine patches for motion sickness and I just put one on to start working overnight. My right pupil is dilated now about an hour later, and I have really bad blurry vision , worse than usual, without my glasses on. My eye area also feels a little numb. Is this a side effect that s happening now or did I get it in my eye? What can I do to stop this effect? Thanks

hii there

scopalamine can cause temporary dilatation of the pupil but generally this is not seen with the patch. if u r getting blurred vision, then probably your doasage needs to be reduced.

pls consult your doctor for the same.

hope this helsps
