Hard to say.: These are not common side effects of either of these meds. Lip twitching can be due to a variety of other issues most of which are benign, but the facial soreness is a little bit more concerning. Really depends upon where the soreness is located. Could represent a variety of dermatologic conditions or even sinusitis or dental issues.
Irritation perhaps: Some irritation to a muscle, nerve, or part of a nerve that goes to certain muscle fibers may cause those fibers to twitch. Such twitching is usually for a few hours or a day, and only once in a while. In those cases, doctors and patients usually don't spend time looking for a cause. But, if symptoms are frequent, or recurrent, a primary doctor, ENT doctor, and a neurologist can evaluate.
Temporalis muscle: The temporalis muscle is on the side of the head. It is used for chewing. You can feel it when you make a bite or clench your teeth.

Those hyperkinetic movement disorders that have a tendency to involve the head include tremors (titubation), tics, and dystonias. The cause for the aforementioned are mostly genetic but at times can be related to metabolic disturbances or meds. Well wishes.
I would certainly: Want his pediatrician to see him for an evaluation, but your worrying about it won't help you or your son.
Neurologic: Consult a neurologist for your symptoms. A complete ; detailed history of origin ; progress of these symptoms is very essential. Pathology in left parotid saliavry gland should also be ruled out, as facial nerve runs in the substance of parotid gland ; pathology related to that gland may affect facial nerve on that side.

Come again?: So you're saying that "face twitching" is the side effect, not the effect? Question: Side effect of what?
