  1. It's only Day 2 with no Effexor. I was taking 37.5mg for months, and then added Prozac 10mg for over 2 weeks. Then pdoc told me this was plenty of buffer time to stop it.... I'm feeling super tired, MAJOR irritability, no appetite, nausea, all over body aches, some brain zaps. I had really hoped that my ridiculously slow taper (with Prozac) would eliminate this....Now on total lockdown, this is not helping the situation or my relationship! I know people are just trying to help here (with telling me other med combos to try) but honestly, after 25 years and 30+ medications I have no ho
  2. Forgot to take Lamictal yesterday (I took my other meds). Holy Hell, I took my dose today (on schedule) and I STILL feel awful!! I've only been on 100mg....I thought Lamictal had a super-long half-life? Yesterday went like this: 10am - up, had breakfast 11am – slight Brain “swishes” started (was out the entire day) 12pm – Stronger Brain zaps start 1:30pm – Lunch (meat, salad/veg) 2:30pm – Sudden extreme exhaustion 4pm - more brain zaps => ZAP ZAP ZAP! 🤯 7pm - Irritability starts 11pm – Tea, bedtime, could not fall asleep (I haven't had insomnia in 2
  3. I have had a non-stop headache for a week now, or since I stopped Seroquel. I was taking a tiny amount (25 mg) so my psych doc thought stopping it suddenly was okay and I was on it for only a month. However, I have had this headache with nausea since then and it wasn't until I started with the brain zaps yesterday that I wondered if I was going thru Seroquel withdrawals. I have had brain zaps while going off of drugs in the past. I have also had to stay away from anything with bright lights as my eyes have been bothering me to. Originally thought it was a migraine but now rethinking. Then two
  4. Quick backstory, I was on Effexor (75mg-150mg) for only 7-8 months, my pdoc tapered me off very slowly (using Prozac as a bridge) over a period of about 5 weeks. I've been completely off both meds now for 2 months. I did not have major withdrawal symptoms (except light fatigue/dizziness) and yet I am STILL getting these intermittent (mild) brain zaps sensations and brain fog - usually in the afternoons/evening. I am very worried that they will never go away... I have been taking many supplements (including Fish Oils, NAC, etc) for many months, exercising, eating healthy. How can i make th
  5. Anyone have any cure for brain zaps (that works asap?) I'm getting the swishing feeling/noise in my head, along with nausea and body aches. Waiting to see pdoc to ask why all of the sudden I'm getting them. I haven't changed my meds. People mention large doses of Omega3s (which I already take everyday along with multivitamin) Magnesium (hopefully Magnesium Citrate which I have), Calcium, superdose of vitaminC?? Is there any other product that helps and is widely available/can easily get on Amazon?? (I don't live in the US)
  6. I recently started on Birth Control pills and suddenly, I'm getting small "brain zaps' and a strange lightheaded feelings throughout the day. Has anyone noticed this?? I'm wondering if the Pill is suddenly causing a decrease in my Lamictal blood levels? If so, has anyone increased dosage and found relief? I wonder how much my pdoc would increase the dose?
  7. Hi all! As of lately, I've been experiencing some fairly concerning side effects, and would appreciate any feedback/insight that anyone may have. I'll try to be as concise as possible, as to avoid confusion (as though mental health isn't a freaking never ending puzzle with a piece missing). I currently take Effexor XR 75mg, usually around lunch time. In addition, the only medications I take are birth control (Tri-Sprintec), and the occasional GummyVite. I never miss my medication, nor screw them up. I've been on the birth control forevr, and on Effexor for about two months, since switc
