Having dizziness, nausea, anxiety, dystonia. Taking zyprexa. Side-effects of medication?

I have been off Zyprexa for 6 weeks and I feel horrible. I m dizzy all the time, nauseous, anxious, tired. I was only on 2.5mg for 5 months and it caused bad dystonia (which has now disappeared). Could this medication have caused permanent neurological damage or CNS damage? After how long do withdrawal symptoms subside? Thanks
