    I've been taking omega3 daily. I've read from a number of people that it helps. I've been tapering from 75mg and am down to 14mg now. I started taking it before I started my taper. I haven't had any brain zaps. I'm not sure if I would have had it without the omega3, but since something is working, I'm going to continue taking it through the end of the taper.

    Sorry for this negativity - but it's now 15 years (or will be early July this year) since I came off Venlafaxine - and although 90% or more has gone, it can still happen. I hope and trust yours is a batter experience,
