Anybody experience them? For how long, frequency, etc. I'm assuming you got through it ok?

Mine went away in about 2 weeks, but I only took Paxil for 6 weeks before going off it.

Its common to get the brain zapps after stop using it for a while. I stopped mine for a week and had that for couple of days, they were not fun, so I don't skip it.

It’s been so long, I’m afraid I don’t remember the complete feeling, I just remember having them.
