side effect, yes or no?

Posted , 5 users are following.

this maybe completely irrelevant to fluoxetine, however I thought I'd mention it anyway- twice today so far I've had brief hyper brain activity which was freaky to say the least, just a few minutes of my brain seemingly whizzing around @ a million miles an hour for no obvious reason, made me speak out loud to calm down! Anybody else ever feel that? Thankyou...smile

    I only encountered brain zaps when I came off my meds.  They were weird, like an electric current passing through my brain.  I think it's yours are possibly just side effects, maybe some kind of electric charge zapping through .......... ?

    The only weird feeling I get are like heart flutters, almost like a shot of adrenalin or happiness I get a burst of occasionally (quite nice actually).  Only lasts a few second, but it is odd.  I have had lots all at times, one after the other, and it's like my heart does a little skip, as Ive measured my pulse at the time and it does a sort of jump.  Doesn't bother me, but often wonder what it is. :-)
