Zoloft is an SSri, which can be too stimulating for some(serotonin is an excitatory neurotransmitter) so I don't think it would be good for shaking. You could have anxiety....but I would get a complete physical to rule out any health disorders in case. Low blood sugar and thyroid problems could be mistaken as anxiety from what I've heard. You could just simply be stressed out too; that may take some adjusting of lifestyle, staying away from drugs, cigs and alcohol is a given.
Just to let you know, my son used to be a personal trainer and he said shaking during or after exercise is actually normal...in fact, the harder one trains the more shakey you can get.
But make sure that it isn't blood sugar or something like that anyway, a physical never hurts!
Even people without blood sugar problems will shake, become dizzy and have headaches if they go too long without eating or if they eat too little, so make sure you aren't doing that, especially if you are active and young, your body needs nutrition and energy most at that time.
