I guess I wasnt very clear. I have been off for 2 1/2 weeks and wanted to make sure that those symptoms I mentioned were normal at this stage of the game. 20 years is a long time.

Hello
No at two weeks you should be getting better.
If you are not you need an exam and would suggest urgent care or the ER with blurred vision.

It is always difficult with anti-depressant withdrawal, as it is not that well understood and there is a protracted withdrawal in some cases...more than 2 weeks.

So I am not saying it can't happen but physical symptoms should be improving.
Hence checking the eyes, doing a set of neuro checks...all a good idea.
good luck
