> Hi. I'm brand new here. I found this site while trying to research the weird sensations I've been having again recently.
> Last year I changed doc's and they changed me from Effexor XR to Lexapro. I had horrible withdrawal problems and lots of feelings of having live wires periodically touched on my bare brain (don't know how else to describe it).
> Ended up changing docs again, and the newest one changed me back from Lexapro to Effexor XR, gradually increasing dose to current 225mg. I seemed to do better on Effexor, but just in the last week or so I've started getting these "frizz" feelings again, and they zap enough to make me a little dizzy.
> I thought they were only associated with med changes. Have any of you had them while supposedly stable on the meds? Is there anything I can do to stop them or lessen the impact? They're very unsettling. Like a second-long mini seizure or something.

Hi. Do you notice these zaps all through the day? Many people have found that at the higher dosages of Effexor, they start to get the zaps when it gets close to time to take the next capsule - it starts to wear off between doses. I've never experienced the zaps except going off an ssri (especially Effexor) but I;ve read here about people having them when the med starts to get low in the body.

And "brain zaps" are exactly what they are called.
