I have had 3 instances of double vision and dizziness on three separate days this week. I have bipolar and anxiety and I take cholesterol and blood pressure medication (I’ve been taking it for years and both are controlled). I recently had full blood work (routine, unrelated) and it was normal. I am a 37 year old female and I weigh 175lbs. Several months ago I was hospitalized for a kidney infection that had become septic along with lithium, Xanax, buspirone and lamotrigine. I also take birth control. Is there a chance these episodes are medication related? I have taken all of them for years. I’m a little worried about going to the ER (symptoms are gone) as I have not read anything good when googling my symptoms. Could you please give me some insight on what could’ve caused this? One happened late at night and the other two instances came during the day. Each episode lasted about 15-20 minutes. Thanks so much for any help.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These episodes could be due to medications or vasovagal syncope.I would suggest you to have routine follow up with your general practitioner to review your medications and evaluate you.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
