Brief Answer: Yes, quiet likely these are withdrawal symptoms. Detailed Answer: Hello, These are very likely to be withdrawal symptoms.And there is nothing much which can be done to avoid them till you start medications. In long term alternative medications should be tried so that dependency can be avoided. Also take multivitamin supplements , these also can be cause of current symptoms , particularly in view of history of hepatitis. Hope this helps.Regards.
