I read that an eye twitch is from either stress, lack of sleep, or lack of potassium. I used to get that often. Try eating some bananas. I wish there was a food for sleep!
Good luck

Hey there, not sure I understood your post correctly. You only used the medication for 10 days 4 years ago?

If you do not mind would you clarify that for me? Thank you kindly and welcome to HealingWell.

Hello Alex 101,

I have been on Clomipramine and Clonazepam and have not experienced eye twitching. I've never heard of the drug Prochilorperazine. I also have OCD. I Have Bipolar II as well.

My eye twitching comes when I am tired and stressed. It feels funny, yet annoying.

May all you folks be, stay, or become well.

Hello again Alex101,

I have just Googled Phenothiazine which is a class of anti-psychotic agents. I have taken Seroquel which is a class of anti-psychotics, in addition with Effexor. I have experienced eye twitching, then I got off it. Six years later I begun to take Seroquel again and Effexor, but this time I did not experience eye twitching. However, when I took Seroquel six years ago, I was drinking alcohol and taking drugs.

May all you folks be, stay, or become well.

I'm reading a book by a doctor and he mentions that SSRI's can cause "tics", mostly in the eyes, etc. The tics or twitches are extremely common during stress. So annoying!! Sometimes I even get twitches above my eyebrows. I do have allergies, which I think irritates the eyes, ears and face, too.
