Not unusual: Stopping cold turkey is not a good idea. The side effects you complain of are what one might expect. I suspect they were worse initially. The out of balance should go away about two to three weeks after stopping the meds. However you may see a heightened anxiety threshold having stopped the meds. You should let your doc know.
