Post-use symptoms can include: seizures; loss of awareness; eye strain; eye or muscle twitching; involuntary movements; altered, blurred, or double vision or other visual abnormalities; dizziness; disorientation; impaired balance; impaired hand-eye coordination; panic or anxiety attack; excessive sweating; increased salivation; nausea; lightheadedness; discomfort or pain in the head or eyes; drowsiness; fatigue; or any symptoms similar to motion sickness, as well as excessive drowsiness and decreased ability to multi-task. Do not drive, operate machinery, or engage in other visually or physically demanding activities that have potentially serious consequences until you have fully recovered from any symptoms.
