What Is A Brain Zap

In withdrawal from antidepressants, sleeping pills or anxiety medications, these jolts of electricity can worsen and become debilitating, although there is no current evidence that the zaps present any danger to the individual, the serotonin antidepressants appear to be linked to brain zaps, as do anxiety medications and sleeping pills that target GABA.

You also mentioned pain.....which is what I developed in addition to the zaps....I describe it as red hot pokers sticking into my eyeballs....I learned that I had, have, optic neuritis....inflammation of the optic nerve....and yes, it hurts like hell....but there are some things you can do to help ......
Here are links to a couple of good discussions....

Hi Five Notions, I read all the sites and am amazed at what this drug causes. I will keep the Jello in mind if this continues to bother me. I have Occipital Neuritis. It also causes sharp pains in my head. When they come it's just as you described it, a hot poker jabbing me.
I'm so glad I found this site. Thanks for all the information. Hope your day is going well, Ginny
