R dialated pupil for 6 days. Poss side effect of transderm scop (scopolamine) patch, risks with it being dialated this long? How get back! HELP!

Scopolamine SEs: This medication can certainly cause a dilated pupil on the side of use. Generally the patch is worn for 3 days - so I wonder how long you've had it on? Also if u touch the gluey surface of the patch, then rub your eye you can dilate the pupil that way by getting the medicine directly in your eye. If no patch is being used now & pupil still dilated, u should see an eye doc today. Hope u feel better ...Read more
