Aspartame Poisoning Eye Problems

Submitted By: Paul (Vermont)

I have problems with my eye consistent with aspartame poisoning symptoms after 3-1/2 months use of aspartame-sweetened cough drops. I would like info regarding ascertaining if the damage is resulting from use of the sweetener, and if so, or likely so, will consider seeking compensation.

Dear Paul,

Well, it is possible that you have experienced such poisoning, however the measure of damages is related to proving your injury.

Before considering a law suit, you need to first visit a health care professional who must be able to establish that you have aspartame poisoning.

From there, you would need to show that the poisoning came from the cough drops AND that there is no language on the packaging indicating that the cough drops contain aspartame which should be ingested cautiously.

Finally, you would need to show that you have experienced “damages” – for example, pain, suffering, loss of wages, etc. Without these elements, it would be difficult to establish an aspartame poisoning case.
