I cannot sleep more than 3hrs per night and I wake up every 45mins in between with the vibrating shakes, it feels like a cell phone on vibrate or a cat purring but it is not calming, it is very alarming. Has anyone gone through this or have any answers as to why this might be happening??

I have been on Zoloft for 30 days now and I have always taken it in the AM
I was on Zoloft a few years ago and experienced the same vibrating along with the sleeplessness. Almost as if a jolt of electricity was going through my body. It's a very unpleasant feeling so I asked my Dr about it. She didn't give me an explanation for it but instead put me on a different anti-depressant. The feeling went away and sleeping was much easier. Try asking your Dr and see if he can give you an explanation, or prescribe a different drug for depression.
My hubby is on Zoloft 100mg for his bipolar diaosrder & depression. He compalined all the time he could not sleep. Though he did not complain abbout this shkiness, After reading a lot of posts here, I found he was taking it before bedtime, & I suggested he take it in the morning. Hence no more restless sleep. (At least not from the Zoloft. He ws recently also put on Wellbutrin, & is now sleeping like a baby when his pain doesn't wake him. Just my thoughts...
