AREDS 2 and side effects

Posted by sally1b2b @sally1b2b, Jul 15, 2018

My eye doctor put me on Areds2 .it is causing an upset stomach, has anyone else had this ?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Eye Conditions group.

Thanks, I stay well hydrated. And when I go off of them for a few days the smell is gone so I have to assume it is from the pill, I have changed nothing else but going off them. Strange.


My eye doctor recommended that I start taking PreserVision Areds 2 since I have early stage of macular degeneration. Yes, I had stomach discomfort for a week after I started taking PreserVision Areds 2. So I stopped. When is in this vitamin that causing stomach issues? I am on RA meds plaquenil 200 mg 1 X a day and 4 methotrexate sodium 2.5 mg 1X a week.
