Occasionally I get a twitch under one or both eyes (whether I'm tired or not) and am curious if anyone has a recommendation on how to get rid of the problem when it occurs? Thanks!

Wow, I didn't know that about botox. I may have to ask my doctor about that, thank you!
Your quite welcome. Very rarely a vitamin deficiency can cause an eye twitch. It would most likely be caused by a lack of vit C since C is essential to collagen which essentially holds everything together, specifically muscles.
I guess it wouldn't be a vitamin C deficiency as I take that twice a day along with juice and fruit, but interesting info!
My eye twitches were due to nerve problems but b12 and magnesium did help.
@bethperry If you have a lot of eye mucous, it sounds like you need more vitamin C. Try adding 1,000mg 2 or 3 times a day and see if that alleviates the mucous and the twitching.
Thanks Rebecca; it can be so irritating when it happens!
Actually the correct term for eye twitches is blepharospasm.
Oh, I didn't know that. Sorry for any confusion my comment may have caused.
No worries, for future reference fasciculations actually applies to twitches in larger muscles like the leg or arm. :D
Well I can see where over stimulation could contribute to twitches, thanks Jonathon!
