Posted , 4 users are following.

Can someone help im off my anti depressants and having to wait for my gp to return from holidays before seeing a doctor. Im having going into my 2nd week brain zaps like electricty through my brain sending a pulse feeling down through neck and chest. I cant move my head much infact its hard to even hold my own head up. I feel like im going to fall over constantly and cant look side to side my eyes have to be focused on one spot mist of the day. Is there anyway of controlling this i feel like im going to have a meltdown its emotionally challenging enough for me without suffering this.

    If you are at a surgery you can see any GP you like and haven't got to wait for yours to return from holiday.   Don't wait and go asap.  x

    Sounds like you are having withdrawal symptoms. Why have you suddenly come off anti-depressants? This is very dangerous as the patient should be weaned off them.

      I am being weaned off them i think its more being on a high dose. My GP is highly skilled knows their job well like. I have to change AD ive had similar withdrawls from other AD but these ones r just alot more severe. I have an appointment today so i should get sorted just felt when made this o couldnt cope with the withdrawls but ive made it. Thank you all

    I throu reponses realise my post gives the impression i went cold turkey this isnt the case i have been weaned of my AD in the appropraite stages followed. Just an over sensitve patient to meds. I have however got sorted with GP and feel alot more relaxed. Thank you all for your responces and i am reassured that there is support in these fourms. Made it through the hardest withdrawl last nyt but will be on the mend from today forward.

    Hello,

    brainzaps are horrid, I really feel for you. Please try the following: as soon as the next zap comes on, cross your fingers ASAP! I mean by that crossing your fingers as you would for good luck. It helped me to stop each zap in its track and I am hoping it'll help you too!

    goo luck!
