Has anyone been experience eye pressure taking this medication? My vision has been weird and it feels like there is alot of pressure behind my eyes, otherwise it works fine, but if this keeps up I am going to have to stop it.

Although I'm feeling better than I have felt in years, I have gained 5 lbs. since starting the prescription 3 months ago. It's not listed as a side effect, but it's very upsetting not knowing if or when the weight gain will stop.
