I know what you mean. I am supposed to be on 20mgs of Lexapro. Ten made me nuts, so I cut it to five. Now I am trying to get off it and it has been a nightmare. That's something else doctors don't bother to tell you. You have to go off it as slow as you go on it. It has been more than a month and I am still getting brain zaps and this 'whoosing' sensation in my head when I move my eyes. I end up taking a pill to get rid of it...and even then it doesn't go away completely.
Hi Cathy...they feel like an electrical shock, but the most disturbing for me is this 'wooshing' sensation I get when I move my head or eyes. it's almost like s super exaggerated startle 'jolt'. I hate it, and I never had this before until I went down to 2.5 mgs then none for three days. I guess the brain craves more of that seratonin!
