Thank you for writing to us.
The medication that you have described are potent neural medication that can cause several side effects. Both taking them and withdrawing from them can cause problems. If you were not told to take the medication by a Doctor, then he must start you on a gradual taper.
Stopping them suddenly is a problem. But, rest assured that the side effects if caused by the drugs will stop in some time. Please talk to a Doctor and get checked. The Doctor can modify the medication to have a partial agonist action with a antagonist action so that the full side effects do not emerge.
Hope this helps you. All the best.
