> I am wondering about this "A1 allele of DRD2 Taq1A polymorphism". I got extremely bad akithisia, jerks, shivers, and even mouth movements from Paxil and company. I still get them sometimes now. I also got noticably better NOT WORSE when I finally dropped it cold-turkey, which I believe indicates a cholinergic mechanism, right?

Gene testing is very expensive and generally reserved for research unfortunately at this point in time, except for the P450 Amplichip, which is cutting edge technology and not generally covered by insurance.

SSRIs, as you experienced, do rarely cause EPS -- this is probably dose related and probably vary by the SSRI used. Zoloft is more often implicated because of its brushover on some dopamine receptors.
