    I was aware of the problem with diphenhydramine. I had really severe sleeping problems a few years ago and took the maximum dose of the stuff every night for several months. Eventually I got all sorts of new health problems developing that I traced to the diphenhydramine and I stopped taking them. The only symptoms I remember after all this time were the most violent restless leg symptoms I've ever had, and a conviction that I was developing galloping dementia.

    I’m intrigued now. What’s a brain zap?

    My scalp gets electric shock feelings and I have to shake my head and blink so I can focus on what's happening.
