What causes electric shock sensations in brain inspite of being on Effexor?
Yeah, alcohol and other drugs can cause this
Hi, thanks for writing through HCM.
Effexor alters brain levels of serotonin and norepinephrine. Norepinephrine excess is associated with variety of anxiety responses in body and it's deficiency is associated with depression.
Alcohol depresses the brain and same is the action of xanax. The combination of both is more depressive to the brain and we usually do not allow to do this. Marijuana is also commonly associated with brain zaps. When you are taking these much drugs together, which acts on brain then you might have some side effects like restlessness, dizziness, brain zaps, sadness etc.
I feel you need to have detoxification from all the drugs and only antidepressant should be given to you. The dose of effexor is not enough and continuous use of alcohol will not allow depression to improve.
If you want to get proper treatment then go to your psychiatrist and discuss your problems.
Do you really take xanax 5 mg? Is it 0.5 mg? Usual dose is 0.5 mg. If you are taking 5 mg then it is very high dose. You should not take this.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further query then I shall be happy to help.
Wish you good health.
