All the symptoms you are experiencing are related to sudden stopping of Avanza. This is not advised as gradual lowering dose until stopping is the most appropriate way of using it.

However, talk to your doctor as soon as possible to start this medication or how to lower the dose is you want to stop using it.

Thank you.
