Missing A Dose Of Effexor

What are the side effects of not taking Effexor for a day?

Yesterday I didn't take the pill and I had a massive headache, felt incredibly weak and I had this urge to vomit. It seems a bit much for just one missed dose, but do these sound like the effects of skipping a day?

Yes, it could definatley be from not taking the effexor. What is your normal dosage of effexor?
In the past, when I was on effexor, I would get dizzy and also get the "brain zaps" if I missed a dose.

Hi, I'm taking 150mg at the moment...but that's gonna increase with my next prescription. I was dizzy yesterday too, but I thought that was because I didn't get any sleep the night before that. I did however, get about 12 hours of sleep the day I felt like vomitting (yesterday).

What do these brain zaps feel like? Whenever I looked up or turned my head quickly, I could feel my head ache. When I pressed against the side of my head, it also hurt like hell.

Re: Missing A Dose Of Effexor

The zaps felt like a shock going through my head for a few seconds. It freaked me out at first, but now I know a lot of people who are on AD's get them. I've been off of effexor for about 3 months and I still get "zaps" sometimes.
