Time and hydration: Depending on the amount of time you have taken the medicine and the dosage, withdrawal can last for days or up to a week or so. If you have already stopped the medication, try to stay hydrated and wait it out. The symptoms are usually non-life threatening, but very uncomfortable. Consult your physician for additional advice.
