Hey all,

Just wondering.. has anyone ever experienced facial twitching from medications? My face is twitching around my eyes and nose and I can't tell if it's stress or my geodon that I started recently. Should I call my pdoc? Is this concerning? The twitching does seem to be getting worse.

Antipsychotics can do that sort of thing. Best to let your pdoc know.

I know others have more first hand experience, the only times I've taken APs I cut it short due to excessive sleeping, can't sleep and drive... :)

Yes, not the face but fingers and toes. I didn't change APs because I feel I'm doing so well on this one that I don't want to go through the motions of a change.

I agree it's best to talk to pdoc about it.
