Cam, one good pharmacist I know told me that during the discontinuation period, patients' brain wave patterns show changes. I wonder if those changes might not correspond to the brain zaps (wild neural firings, or such?).

As for Tim, I've never watched that show & only know that the actor Tim Allen was in it. My humour tends to the bizarre & really off-the-wall type - American sit-coms just don't fit the bill. Red Dwarf, Black Adder, Titus, & Futurama are great.

Thanks for all the responses & answers.

> IsoM - I have never personally seen someone having long term discontinuation side-effects, but I did read about cases lasting at least 9 months in a journal (Annals oF Pharmacotherapy?) once.
> Gravol™ (dimenhydramine) is an antihistamine, and it should help with the vertigo, as it deadens the response of the cilia in the vestibular apparatus (inner ear structure that tells you your orientation in space). As for the brain zaps, I still don't know what the hell they are, or what causes them.
> As for the Tim comment; I didn't watch the show, but on Home Improvement wasn't the neighbor who peered over the fence and gave advice named Wilson? Sorry, it was another poor attempt at humor.
