Withdrawal, hour by hour?

I was discussing, with another member, the rollercoaster, good day /bad day that makes this even more frustrating. But yesterday, in the morning I hardly had enough energy to walk to the bathroom. Later that afternoon, in an effort to ease awful abdominal cramps, I thought I'd try to take a short walk, as I was feeling a little better. I went for a short walk, and wasn't really tired when I got back. However, that afternoon, my wife told me that dinner was ready, and when I got up to walk to the dining room I felt like I had earlier, exhausted with a side order of vertigo. I don't mean to post insignificant stuff, I just thought I would let others know how confusing and merciless this process can be. Godspeed to all, David

    Not insignificant atall David ..the way to look at it is IF your comments help bring even a tiny bit of comfort to just 1 person ...the post has been with making.

    Your posts like everyone else's is just reiterating to us who have struggled with withdrawal and/or mirtazapine how up and down things can be. And that's gotta be worth something...

    Well I have to report that 8 days after going back onto 30 mg to give myself some strength to try the withdrawal again I'm feeling somewhat better, but still got the vertigo on rising and the zaps when tired ( which happens too easily!)

      I often see people refer to brain zaps or just zaps in forums about meds. But I am not sure what people mean by it, what it the physical symptom of a zap?

      Well I feel them like a pulse of electricity shooting through my head and/or body. I also got waves of muscular contractions through my arms and legs, and round the middle of my body.
