From this study (2 days ago):
I also stick out my tongue a lot and cw
From this study (4 days ago):
I have PCOS possible Endometriosis, bleeding while on TRANEXAMIC and CONTRACEPTION. ferritin levels increase (minor)
From this study (5 days ago):
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.
