I am in my 40s and I work in college admissions. Ive never experienced migraines before and have been otherwise healthy. I fell hitting my head and was prescribed this medicine. Using this med had me in the hospital twice, I have severe hair loss, and what the er Dr says is syncope that makes me pass out. The Dr wants to try something new but look at me, in a profession where you're always in the public eye, almost bald and still suffering migraines.This is life altering but is being treated as , just one of those things...its depressing

Hi I'm male, 24, of Sri Lankan origin but born and raised in the United Kingdom, I'm adding these details as it was requested when attempting to reply to you.
My question is was this on Modafinil/Provigil/Nuvigil and if so which one please?
The comment below you is talking about statin which is a cholesterol reducing drug, so was wondering whether you were talking about the same. Thanks in advance.

I started taking amoxotine only 10mg per day to build up slowly. After 3 days I developed a eyelid twitch of the left eyelid which I did not at first connect to the medication as I could not see anything about this within the list of side effects. The twitching got worse and more frequent on a daily basis and by 6th day it was several times per minute and extremely annoying. so I googled and saw that despite it not being in the official list of side effects, that it does appear to be a side effect for a lot of people. 3 days after stopping the medication, I am still experiencing some twitching, and my eye socket is actually aching, but the twitching is getting less and less. I should add that I have never suffered any kind of tics or facial twitching in the past, with or without any medication, although I do suffer adhd and chronic migraine, and anxiety.
