Brain zaps


I was just on Paxil which helped me a lot but I lot my insurance. My doctor wouldn’t give me a refill without an appointment so I had to stop taking them.

A few days or a week after that I got the ‘brain zaps.’ I didn’t think I would get withdrawal because I was on the lowest dose. Now I think I’m getting sick and they’re getting worse and they seem a little different.

Has anyone gotten sick while having these brain zaps and did it get worse for you?

It’s making me think it’s something worse. Definitely would be nice if I could have just stayed on Paxil.
