Advice & Tips: When I realized that I was getting severely dizzy and was having shock-like sensations in my brain when I DID NOT remember to take it, I stopped it altogether. Then I had recurrence of my depression (but worse than ever), anxiety, feelings of being persecuted, argumentiveness, etc. Thereafter, taking any SSRI would relieve the shocks, but not my depression.
