Hi, I forgot to take my ven last night. I take 75mg XR every 12 hours as I metabolize too fast to go 24 hours! I should have taken the dose at 10pm but woke in the night at 4:30am and realised I'd forgotten. I've had brain zaps all day, I took my other 75mg at 4pm and still have brain zaps! I know its just because of the delay in taking the dose but I've had to take sone diazepam as I can feel myself getting anxious over the worry of the zaps lol. I thought they'd stop by mid morning/lunchtime today. Anyone else have such immediate effects when missing a dose?

    It's okay, keep to your schedule and it'll even out. I take only one dose of 75 in the morning, and you're right, I've had brain zaps about an hour or two after taking it late, but usually withing hours, they're gone. So because you metabolize fast, it will probably take you a little longer. Don't worry, you'll be fine.
