Its not usually wise to stop any drug which affects one's brain function, suddenly rather than gradually, and even with antidepressants some of these symptoms can be seen then for the first couple of qweeks after you stop. If the symptoms are improving, stay stopped. If they gert worse or intolerable, you may want to go back on the CIlift, and then, in consultation with your shrink or prescribing doc, to come off them again but more gradually this time
