[Pharmacological treatment of nystagmus].
Ophthalmologe. 2011 Feb; 108(2):178-82.O

Abstract

Nystagmus can be associated with strong discomfort due to oscillopsia, blurry vision and dizziness. Since generally no curative treatment methods exist, studies focus on potential pharmaceuticals to dampen the nystagmus. An overview is given on which forms of nystagmus can be treated with what kind of pharmacological substances and their possible mechanism of nystagmus dampening. Controlled studies found gabapentin and memantine to be effective in acquired pendular nystagmus and early-onset idiopathic nystagmus, and an efficacy of 4-aminopyridine in downbeat nystagmus.
