Brief Answer: Adverse effect. Detailed Answer: Hi, I have gone through your query. As you have mentioned that you are on Prozac (Fluoxetine) and Serax (Oxazepam), Shaky hand and twitching can be experienced. These are the adverse effect of Fluoxetine and its incidence is about 1-10%. There is no need to worry about these. If they are causing discomfort then you have to contact your treating doctor for change of prescription. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
