Mary, I'm not Cam, but in asking him something I figured was true I found that Gravol (travel sickness tablets) are an antihistamine though they don't work well that way. But they were origally developed for that & their molecular structure puts them in that class.

I take Celexa & adrafinil - Olmifon - but have been trying to stop Paxil for ages. I have to take a small amount: 10mg, no benefit but it makes the brain zaps & vertigo minimal most times. I keep trying to stop it completely by lowering the dose slowly but the discontinuation symptoms are unbearable. I just tried last week again. Last night at work, my brain zaps & vertigo were REALLY bothering me. I felt so spacey & developed a horrible headache.

I bought some Gravol & took two tablets (50mg), something I've only done before I go to bed as it generally makes me sleepy. The headache faded a bit but the brain zaps & vertigo went completely after a hour or so! I was quite surprised.

I've just woken up now & will make myself some tea & take my meds. This time I'm going to take Gravol with it too to see if the discont symptoms go away again.

Thought this might be of benefit to you. If you want to try it, buy the generic Gravol, much cheaper - not that it's expensive medication anyway. You can probably buy the little blister packs that only have about a dozen in them too. I'll have to post back if it always controls these MORE THAN ANNOYING symptoms.

> Cam, I am having a terrible time after discontinuing zoloft. I took 50-75 mg in June, July and August. After stopping, I had horrendous ringing in my right ear, vertigo, naseau, it felt like my brain was on fire, and had spasms around the right side and back of my head. I had a tremour that made my teeth chatter. Its been 3 months now, and most of the symptoms have abated. However the tinnitus is down to a pusating wispery noise, that can turn stronger, if I take any medication that is not benzo related, then the muscle spasms, and tremour happen. They usually elevate the noise in my ears. I am suffering terribly with anxiety. Will this ever go away? Have you heard of this type of discontinuation symptoms beings so persistant before? Any advice would be appreciated.
> Mary
