Maria Gnanasoundari, Chai Yee Chin, Surina Zaman Huri


Diplopia is a visual disturbance with perception of two images of a single object with various types of aetiologies. Here, we intend to highlight an uncommon side effect of lorazepam induced diplopia following an overdose. The diplopia resolved spontaneously without any neurological or physical deficit in the absence of any intervention. In conclusion, the exact mechanism of diplopia induced by lorazepam is unknown. More research in future could be done to determine the causal relationship between benzodiazepine and visual disturbances.
