A little background. I began treatment for post partum depression and GAD in March 2010. My psychiatrist put meon Cipralex, 10 mg a day. In July 2011 we decided that treatment was successful and it was time to start tapering down. So she had me go to 5mg a day for a month. The idea was I'd just stop after that. I started getting brain zaps/momentary feelings of fog 2 days after stopping.
So she had me go to 5mg every other day for a month, again the plan being stopping totally after a month. Still, I get brain zaps.
She's told me to just stop at this point because I am on a tiny tiny dose (5mg every 3 days) but if I do, I get the zapping. Tonight is day 5 and I am so upset because I cannot get the zaps/fog to stop. I ended up taking 5mg hoping that would help, but nothing.
I was on Celexa years ago and it was not this bad at all to come off of!
I'm very scared and wondering if I will ever feel "normal" again.
