    Hi Michelle

    I've just started Cit but having come off Seroxat which is a pain in the ass to get off I have experienced these brain zaps.   They aren't anything major so please don't worry.  It's like a very mild feeling of electric shock or pins and needles in your head, not painful or majorly alarming.  Just keep in your mind that's it's a side effect of coming off.  I coped fine with them and they don't last that long, usually for a couple of days when you drop a dose then they dissapear.  Hope this helps.
