I have frequently noticed brain zaps after I tapered Xanax (a benzodiazepine) for panic attacks, from a low dose of .75 mg per day to 1/2 of a .25 mg pill per day divided into "crumbs". I did this taper over a period of about 3 months.The zaps seem to occur mostly on awakening, and frequently come in "clusters", lasting only microseconds and continuing for several minutes to an hour. Often the disappear for several days or a week.I feel them mostly in the back part of my brain. I would like to know if they will eventually disappear, or if they are a permanent affliction. Does anyone have experience with this?
