Psychiatrist 's  Response

welcome to the public forum of health care magic

A better choice would be to consult a psychiatrist for readjustment of the dose or prescribing an alternative medicine as well as for psychotherapy sessions

Don't remove the implant as it has nothing to do with it...however, you might have some psychological impact of implant

Do some relaxation exercises like deep breathing, yoga or meditation

Good Luck
