Muscle twitches from Antidepressant?

Hi all,
About a month ago, I started taking sertraline (zoloft). Shortly afterwards, I started having muscle twitches.......the kind that make your arm/hand/leg jump. I'm thinking its a side-effect of the med. Hopefully it will go away. Anyone else ever have this with antidepressants?

Yep, I have experienced this too, just a side effect. If it gets too bad let your doctor know.
