Did you stop it on your own? It can cause all those things and more if you stop it all at once. You are going to feel it even when stopped right because your body is used to the action of it.

Depends on how long you were taking it, how much, was the cessation Dr ordered and done gradually or us it something you did on your own without the Dr's approval, instruction or direction, age, overall health, why it was prescribed in the first place, other meds you may be on, alcohol use, um... yeah.
