Discontinuation symptoms definitely occur, and I think it is mostn unfortunate that most pharmaceutical companies try to minimize or ignore this, and fail to give good information and advice about it to patients or doctors. Thanks for giving such an insightful and useful description of your experience. I have indeed heard of the brain zaps and similar phenomena.
These DO, fortunately, seem to go away ; they ar reputedly minimized or avoided by stopping such meds gradually rather than suddenly, and I have not found any good research dealing with this important issue.
