It can be part of withdrawal, so consult a psychiatrist and he/she will taper the dose for you. All the best.

Dear mam suddenly stopping the medicine can cause these symptoms. Also, there is a risk of depression coming back. How long the medicine needs to be continued depends on a lot of factors like the duration of illness and response to treatment as well as severity of symptoms. Please see a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation and further help in regards to stopping the medication.
