  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • I don´t know if my eye twitching is caused by carbamazepine, but i think so. So i would be happy to receive any advice. I suffered from a head trauma a year and a half ago. i take 600mg of carbamazepine every day. I haven`t had any seizures, at least i thin so, the meds were prescrived for me to assure i wouldn´t have any.
