    Hi,

    Does anyone know what"brain zaps are"?

    I have gained weight and have started to have pain again

    after being on cymbalta 4 months. Read another board and

    many were going off cymbalta but had a very hard time and

    said they had frequent brain zaps and were taking Omega3.

    Does anyone know what they are talking about and any

    suggestions for going off of cymbalta? Heard it can be

    BAD.

    Thanks for any help or suggestions!

    Love you all,

    Kasilou
