... symptoms. I already know what to expect cause it took my doctor a week to call in a refill and I was totally out. I didn't know about "brain zaps" or " brain shivers" until I started to experience them after a day or so. They are horrible!! And my dreams were crazy and very vivid. I didn't want to tell anybody because how does one describe a "brain zap" and the noise in the ears that accompanies them. Such a split second sensation that repeats several times, then goes away. I researched on line and found out that others have and are experiencing the same thing. It was comforting to know I wasn't alone and it was real. Anyway, I want off this drug but do not trust my doctor to believe me or help me if I tell her the withdrawal symptoms. I am concerned that she will chalk it up to anxiety or depression
