My doctor wanted me to switch off of Effexor because I was having brain zaps he calls them. But the problem is I can't remember how he told me to switch. I'm trying to, but I was wondering if anyone else has done it made the switch that is.

Hi, there! A few years ago I tapered off of Effexor and resumed remeron. The brain zaps were very real and annoying, but were gone after 3 or 4 days and I never had any other Effexor withdraws since.
