I´m taking Efexor 75mg a day and I have never experienced muscle spasms but I have trouble to fall asleep.
My psychiatrist gave me Imovane to help me fall asleep, and it helped the first weeks
but now its effect is decreased and has started to make me sweat when I sleep.
When I wake up my bed is wet. This never happened when I took Imovane with Prozac.
