Fluoxetine and shaky hands / tremors


I've been on fluoxetine for nearly 3 months for general anxiety. It's worked well. I'm calm but still enjoying life (unlike when I tried sertraline a few years ago and felt totally flat).

However I've noticed I'm getting shaky hands especially in the morning (I take the fluoxetine- 20mg- in the morning).

Should I speak to my GP? Has anyone else had this? I think tremor can be a side effect of SSRIs.

Hi. Definitely bring it up to your GP. They should know about any medication concerns/ questions.
