What eye disease can be triggered by Azulfidine?
Azulfidine is a drug that has many side effects. Some patients who take the drug experience blurred vision. The blurring will usually go away without specific eye treatment once the Azulfidine is stopped.
Some patients who take Azulfidine experience jaundice (yellowing of the eyes and skin) due to toxic effects of the drug in the liver. This yellowing of the eyes will clear when the liver recovers from the drug toxicity.
