Psychiatrist Dr. Mahesh Kumar Suthar's  Response
S zetalo plus contain esitalopram and clonazepam both,
but S zetalo plain contain esitalopram alone.
So it is clonazepam which is creating problem,
Sudden stopage of clonazepam can cause this , this is withdrawal of this drug .

You need to understand that why you are taking this Szetalo plus from last 2 year
Possibly you are suffering from ? anxiety disorder.
First your anxiety disorder should be adressed and then take proper dose of anti anxiety drug from a psychiatrist.

Psychiatrist Dr. Keerthish Shetty's  Response
You were taking szetalo plus(which contains a combination of szetalo + clonazepam) for two years without any such problems. Now the problems are due to stoppage of clonazepam, which is an anti anxiety drug. After two years of continuous use, you were dependent on clonazepam. Therefore, sudden stoppage resulted in withdrawal symptoms. It could have been avoided or diminshed by tapering down the dose of clonazepam (decreasing dose gradually before stopping).

You can consult your psychiatrist for your problems. One option is to restart clonazepam seperately and tapering it off gradually over a period of several weeks.
