Does anyone else get brain zaps?

I take Viibryd and Rexulti and I forgot to take them yesterday and last night I had brain zaps. I haven't had any in awhile, I used to get them bad but they've come back. Has anyone else had these before? They suck :(

Hey Spooky YES !  In fact, googling electric pulses in my brain is what led me to finding out there were online anxiety forums.  Brain Zaps ! Who knew they had a name. I don't take any psyche meds but I get them anyway. It is much more common when anxiety is high and when I'm calm I rarely get anything like that. 

Welcome !

I am not on an SSRI and I have been getting them lately too.  I have been especially anxious lately so I wonder if that is why.  Maybe they are caused by excess adrenaline ?  Idk but they are scary and annoying to me.

I have been on Vybrid for almost a week and I'm getting nasty brain zaps too. I switched from Zoloft to Vybrid so I think it's just the Zoloft working it's way out but the brain zaps I get on Vybrid are pretty strong. I had some when I tried to sleep (we learned Vybrid before bed is a bad idea) and these are just as bad as a hypnic jerk. Nearly jumped off the bed in a cold sweat because of it. But I do agree brain zaps suck.
