> I experience this on effexor, and did on paxil, as well. When I first wake up, I feel the need to move my hands and fingers in a tic-like way,wiggling them, rotating, etc. I also have involuntary muscle twitches, called myoclonus, when at rest, like before falling asleep. It is interesting, because muscles move that I couldn't possibly ever will to move. The inner restlessness, and the myoclonus make it very hard to fall asleep, which is why my "cocktail" includes another antidepressant to help me sleep.

Isn't this the same as "RLS" Restless Leg Syndrome? There are web pages out there for this.
