Psychiatrist 's  Response
When certain antidepressants are stopped abruptly without tapering them, this can cause what is known as a "serotonin discontinuation syndrome." tingling sensations over the body can be a part of this problem. I have seen this syndrome last up to several weeks at a time, but never for three months after cessation of a medication like you describe. Nevertheless, it could be the case that your daughter continues to have these symptoms. She should consult a psychiatrist for further guidance of course.
