I would agree that it is not likely to be TD. First of all, my understanding is that TD is not common in Prozac. Second, my understanding is that TD comes as a result of ongoing, longterm use of certain meds at high doses.
I have had muscle twitching as a reaction to paxil and effexor, though only when at rest, like when lying in bed before sleep. It is helped by taking another antidepressant, Serzone, which is sedating, and counters the activating aspects of effexor.
It could be an INITIAL effect, meaning it will fade with time. If it doesn't, I would consider trying a different medication, or try lowering the dose and adding another AD, one less activating than PRozac.
