In Reply to: eye twitching... accutane related? posted by sybil on November 01, 2000 at 21:03:47:
Hiya everyone !
Just thought I would add my 2 pence worth of knowledge as a medical student . The eye actually uses Vitamin A as the mechanism for sensing light, and thus will move the eye in the direction of light / vitamin A production / breakdown . . . . . excess Vitamin A could cause a twitch ?
: for the past week or so i've had a slight twitch in my left eye. it's nothing noticeable to other people but i can definitely feel it. maybe twice a day or so. could this be caused by accutane? should i be worried? has anyone else experienced this or even heard of it happening? i'm in my sixth week of treatment and none of the other side effects are extreme. just slightly chapped lips and my skin is a little flaky. but nothing else that has caused me to worry until now. please, any info would be appreciated.
