Patient blinded after overdosing on sildenafil

The man who consumed 10 times the recommended dose has ongoing eye problems

The “stop it or you’ll go blind” myth had a grain of truth about it for one patient who experienced night blindness and other eye issues after drinking an entire bottle of sildenafil.

The man in his mid-50s consumed about 10 times the recommended 80mg dose of sildenafil, when he drank the contents of a 30mL bottle of the erectile dysfunction medication, representing a total dose of 750mg.
