Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ms,

I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns but unfourtanetly taking both medications together can cause a moderate interaction leading to increasing side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, and difficulty concentrating. Some patients may also experience impairment in thinking, judgment, and motor coordination. impairement in motor coordination can cause muscle twitches . so, yes taking the two medications can be the cause of her twitches . I would recommend that she refers to her doctor to change the medications or decrease the doses.

I hope I answered your question .
