Question: Can allergy medicine cause eye twitching?

Answer: Certain medications have been known to cause eye twitching and some of the common allergy medicines are among them. For example Diphenhydramine (found in Benadryl for example) has a side effect of “fasciculations” which are uncontrolled muscle twitches most commonly occurring in the eyelid. Strangely enough though most people with allergies actually get the eyelid twitch from their allergies and the medications reduce or eliminate them rather than the opposite being true. It appears to be a person to person thing but it is possible the medication could be to blame.
