my eye is twitching on accutane idk what to do!

Recommended Posts

i just begun my second month of accutane and my skin already looks fantastic, which is great... but for the past three days my right eye has been pulsating if that makes sense. it's really slight and not noticeable to others, but it's beginning to really irritate me. i was wondering if anyone else has experienced this and if there are any drops or anything that i can use to make it go away... thanks!

I experience that all the time, pre, during, and post Accutane. It's usually induced by stress or lack of sleep. It'll go away on its own in a few days. Nobody else notices it, but you feel it so it seems like it's so obvious. It's not.

i got it for a period too while on accutane. I took to using eyedrops a few times a day (just the normal type, no need for any special medicated eyedrops) and it went away soon enough. Perhaps you could try that.

Accutane makes the eyes dry, and as a result, it may cause the eye muscles to twitch.

Of course, the eye twitching could be completely non-accutane related, but i think give the eyedrops a shot.

Good luck!
