Macular degeneration eye disease ..

Hi @sally1b2b

I'm tagging @bonitav Mentor @johnbishop as they've discussed AREDS 2, and I'd like to share this information about "What AREDS Means for You: https://nei.nih.gov/areds2/PatientFAQ

The Eye, Ear, Nose & Throat group on Connect, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/ear-nose-throat-conditions/ has some great discussions taking place; please feel free to scroll through and join in wherever you feel comfortable. For instance, here's one about macular degeneration that might interest you:

@sally1b2b, have your digestive issues settled?

Hi @sally1b2b
I've been taking AREDS 2 for about a year and have never experienced an upset stomach after taking the pill. I recently started taking one in the morning and one in the evening which I think is the dosage recommended on the packaging. I have a friend in his mid 80s who was involved in the Bausch and Laumb study for AREDS 2 and he still receives free pills from them. He's never had any stomach issues either. I did find that it is a known side effect that you should discuss with your doctor if you are having it.
