Our expert says:
Urbanol is not an antidepressant. It is ABSOLUTELY NEVER a good idea to stop such meds suddenly, rather than gradually withdrawing them, and never a good idea to stop without the proper assessment and advice of an appropriate expert. There are fishy things that happen about the availability and unavailability of some meds at times. But Aropax itself isn't essential, and there should have been equivalent eneric versions available if it was temporarily not available.
Only a proper asessment by AT LEAST a GP. and preferably your psychiatrist, could clarify to what extent your symptoms are due to wirhdrawal from the drugs or other causes. It is irresponsible for a doctor to allow a patient to suffer possible withdrawal syndrome without providing at least a temporary prescription t tide them through till he can give them an appointment to see him. If the crisis has been caused by the doctor prescribing a more expensive form of a drug WHICH IS NOT AVAILABLE, he should provide a prescription for a generic version which he has checked IS available, as this is not changing the situation he desired, of you remaining on that drug at that time. Insisting on not doing so before you saw him again ( which he wuldn't have required had there not been a supply problem ) and without even proviin a prompy appointment for you to do so, was unreasonable.
Maybe consider a second opinion, if you can get a more urgent appointment to see a different shrink or at least GP.
