Twitching eyelids is it normal?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hey guys new to this forum.

Basically I need some help/reassurance. So I’ve been suffering really bad with health anxiety I also have severe ptsd my doc put me on citroplam (not sure how to spell it) ever since then I have a twitch in my right eye lid only lasting a few seconds a time but comes and goes at least 50 times a day and now it’s started in my left eye.. I’ve had all tests done I’m perfectly healthy apart from Vit D deficiency but because of my HA I litreally think I’ve got some sort of tumour,ms, aneurysm etc. I’m just a mess at the minute. Any advice would be much appreciated xx

    Another side effects of celexa is eye twitching or eye vibrations is another ..don't let the side effects side track your recovery they can't hurt you..

      Thankyou for replying, It’s so scary to have these twitches especially when I’m so worried about my health. The twitches in my eye arnt visible I can just feel them its really hard to explain now it’s gon to my left eye but not as bad as right eye and get a little twitch on my top lip. It’s just one thing after another it’s so draining xx

      Hi Lois, I used to be on 20mg of fluoxetine/Prozac is that equivalent to 10mg of citalopram? I have been following your comments on here and have found them a great help. Thank you so much x

      No you can't compare the two ..celexa has sadating effects while the Prozac has energy effects..the only med comparable to celexa is Lexapro...

    Ditto what Lois said..... these twitches etc. are all passing side effects.

    And the citalopram itself causes heightened anxiety in the beginning, so your HA may be exacerbated at the moment.

    How long have you been taking the cit?

      I have found that it takes some time for side effects to go. On the packaging/ some GPs make it sound as though everything resolves itself very quickly, but I just never found that the case. Really does sound like cit side effects.

      Thanks Lois... That's where it all gets confusing. I just don't believe the packaging any more.... it makes it sound as if everything will be 'right as rain' in five minutes, and it just doesn't really work like that.....

      I've read a few comments of people saying they haven't had much side effects. I think only 2 . lol I'm glad I found this forum. Its nice to know I'm not along. And things will get better in time.

      My brother was the same way no side effects. He was just telling me that. I was crazy because celexa didn't give him any problems.

      Isn't that crazy...I thought the same thing too.my thoughts where if they deal with it normally so would I..I was wrong...way wrong..how many times did I call my mom asking questions and why's..but she couldn't answer me because she never suffered from start ups..mind you she's been on them for over 20years..
