"My son was given a higher dosage of ADHD medication, and now has trouble with his eyes. Is the twitching permanent?"
Larry Silver, M.D.
You do not specify the ADHD medication. I will assume it is either Ritalin, Dexedrine, or Adderall. Each of these medications can cause motor tics. What you describe is a motor tic. The medication should be discontinued. The tics should stop. Then, another medication should be considered. We do not continue on these medications when they cause a tic disorder.
