      Hi Tracey 

      Sertline 50mg By MEREICH for 5 months ( receiving the continuation off the same brand)

      BUT 5.5 month I was given a different brand which were BLUE: didn't take to good to this brand, by the 2nd pack I couldn't take any more off the horrid side effects.......when I called into my local chemist the Pharmacist was extremly concerned and was given a new pack and were were called been on this a week!

      why do u ask???!.

      Hi Shelly it was just a thought because I hadn't experienced any twitching before but have just started a new brand and I get occasional twitching which is like someone has just given me an electric shock.

    Hi, Shelly,

    I'm Jeffrey. Actually, one of the less frequent side effects of Sertraline is muscle twiching/jerking. If you are fatigued and/or anxious, there would be a more likely chance of this potential symptom. That you experiencing this in your shoulder is probably in itself not significant. Otherwise, Sertraline can cause a lot of side effects, some very uncomfortable..
