Withdrawal: Those medications do have withdrawal instructions. It may take a few weeks to get back to normal. Not every doctor follows decreasing doses so you may be more sensitive to the medication effects. Take it easy and your body will get back to its best. Should you still not feel good get a physical , labs and follow up to see if there is another reason for your symptoms.
