Since I started the med my thumbs have started twitching and also my calve muscles slightly?
There is no listing of such side effect, however it can not be ruled out as possible side effect lists are not always complete.
I suggest you contact your doctor and inform him / her what you are experiencing.
For future reference:
Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
Stop using this medication and call your doctor at once if you have a serious side effect such as:
dry mouth, thirst, nausea, vomiting;
feeling weak, drowsy, restless, or light-headed;
fast or uneven heartbeat;
muscle pain or weakness;
numbness or tingly feeling;
a red, blistering, peeling skin rash; or
nausea, stomach pain, low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes).
Less serious side effects may include:
mild stomach pain;
This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Tell your doctor about any unusual or bothersome side effect. You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.
I hope you get well soon.
