Brain zaps

« Back to Glossary Index

Brain zaps are a sensation of electrical shock or jolt that can occur in the brain, often during discontinuation or withdrawal from certain medications such as antidepressants or benzodiazepines. The exact cause of brain zaps is not well understood, but they may be related to changes in neurotransmitter activity in the brain. Brain zaps can be uncomfortable and may be accompanied by other symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, and confusion. Treatment for brain zaps depends on the underlying cause and may involve medication adjustments, tapering schedules, or other interventions to alleviate symptoms and prevent complications.
