Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX Thanks for the query.
fortunately withdrawal symptoms are not serious after such period and dosage.even longer high dosage wouldn't cause significant symptoms. But if anything occurs it can be nausea, vomiting, sweating,agitation, anxiety or depression. But it should subside in 1-2 wells. Some more serious signs are rate and can include heart palpitations,arrithmias and hypotension and you should visit hospital in this case. Wish you good health.regards
