Hi, Alan~
My brain flashes (or zaps, as some here have called them...good name, also!) are coming right now, as a matter of fact-I'd say a zap every 10 min. or so, and sometimes they're what I call "double zaps". I'm down also to 37.5 mg. every other day. With this dosage, I'm feeling the flashes, some dizziness and headaches and a teeny bit of edginess. Also have felt a little nausea, but nothing that half a dramamine isn't helping. I was on 75 mg. every day, and had never felt so sleepy in my life! I've definitely lost the need for long afternoon naps.

I think as long as I stay busy and active, I don't notice the zaps as much. It's not easy, but I'm hanging in there. Once I'm off this stuff for good.....never again.:-)
