Stablon and brain 'zaps'

Posted by sukarno on July 15, 2007, at 17:28:22

I've been on Stablon for 2 1/2 years and a few days ago I tapered from 4 tablets a day to 3 tablets a day. Today I only took 2. Yesterday I felt some mild nervousness and just wasn't feeling right, but nothing major.. I could handle it. I then had a panic attack, but it too wasn't severe.

Today though I was just reading an article online and experienced a massive brain zap and about fell out of my chair. I feel off balance and anxious. The zap was like a seizure, although I've never had a seizure. It reminds me of Paxil's effects after taking 1/2 tablet of that years ago.

It's like someone took a hammer to my head and my reaction/reflex was to strike the desk and I immediately put my head on the bed, which is next to my chair. My wife was startled and I told her I think this must be a withdrawal reaction from Stablon.

Seems so much like SSRI withdrawal, but I've never really experienced SSRI withdrawal. I've only had a brain zap in 1993 after taking 1/2 tablet of Paxil and that scared me to death. In 1996 I also felt a big electrical shock sensation and thought I was struck by lightning and even heard the sound when I was walking outside at night in the downtown area, but no one else saw or heard any lightning that night. I had just come off Prozac a month or two prior to that episode.

I really don't think I can taper anymore from this drug. I might just be stuck on this stuff forever.

The reason why I tapered was because I began to develop a rash around my ankles and then it appeared on my arms, but now it seems to have resolved.

Has anyone else quit Stablon and experienced any horrific effects?
