I have read many posts regarding the ‘brain zaps’ experienced when tapering off of Pristiq. Can someone explain a little more what these feel like? I have been experiencing 24/7 dizziness, but not anything that feels particularly like a brain zap. Has anyone had this ongoing dizziness, and if yes, how long did it last?? Is making it difficult to do everyday activities (driving, working, excercise, etc).
I began tapering off by taking one pill every other day for a week, and then every three days for another week. Am now on first week of not taking any pill at all. This is day 5. Am also definitely experiencing return of anxiety, and nausea. But I am also in 1st trimester of pregnancy, so am unsure what symptoms are being caused by what.
If anyone has any similar experience and words of advice/encouragement, please share! Would be nice to know I’m not alone out there…
