I have been taking a low dose of Ativan .5mg for anxiety related insomnia. This was tolerated well until just recently, when I began to have muscle twitching.

I was very briefly on Paxil (a week) and developed twitching, which stopped when I stopped the drug. What experiences have others had with Ativan and muscle twitching? How severe was the twitching?
