Zolofdt and Eye twitching
« on: August 28, 2014, 02:44:05 PM »
Hi All, I'm just wondering if anyone has experienced eye twitching due to Zoloft? I've just recently increased to 100mg and my right eye is twitching quite a bit. Could that be a side effect?
Thank you,
Joseph

It probably is, Joseph, triggered by the dose increase. Serotonin is not just a brain neurotransmitter. It is also involved in gut regulation, blood vessel tone (constriction and dilation), wound repair, blood coagulation, and pertinent to your side-effect, muscle contraction, including moderating twitch tension. Serotonergic antidepressants can affect all those functions in the beginning and whenever the dose is altered. However, the body usually quickly adjusts and most of these side-effects diminish after a week or two.
