When this occurs it is temporary, and typically occurs only during the first week of treatment. Other side effects include eye pain, toothache, muscle twitch, facial pain and pain of the skin (occurring in ≥5% of patients and at 2 times the rate of placebo). There is a rare risk of seizure with TMS therapy (0.1% of patients).1,5
