Trazodone is great for sleep for some, however brain zaps would be very unlikely due to increasing the dose unless you stopped something else cold turkey or decreased the dosage way to fast. Trazodone is an old antidepressant which would cause withdrawl symptoms such as zappers, etc, if you stopped it for any reason to increase it, then more than likely zappers will start up. With thease psycotropic drugs out there you never know what way the med or meds will take a turn on you, stay on low doses as possible with minimal meds so you can pinpoint your symptoms as they persist. Just my plain own opinion though.

Yes this is the same thing. I am on effexor and get the same side effect if I miss a pill. The jolts aren't harmful, but they are very disconcerting. Check with your Dr to see if they can ween you off more slowly.
