Hello CorkyBoo. It would help to know how long and what dose you have been taking. If it is a quick dose pack for ten days or so. Your condition should have improved and no lasting side effects.
If long term, it must be very carefully weened down or you can have many problems, some dangerous. Of course, never stop on your own. You need a physician to help with this.
Please provide more information and I would be happy to help with your situation.
