It's hard for anti-depressant users to wean themselves off their prescriptions, not only for emotional reasons but also because the body tends to develop a dependency on the pills, resulting in withdrawal symptoms. One of the strangest and most disturbing side effects of anti-depressant withdrawal is known as "brain zaps," which are pretty much exactly what they sound like — the feeling of an electrical shock running through your head. While the sensation won't cause any long lasting damage, it can be painful and is often more mentally disturbing than it is physically bothersome.
