Hi,
Welcome to Ja and thanks for this question. I'm sorry to hear about your symptoms. Actually seem to be suffering from postural hypotension or even autonomic instability which are usually the side effects of this drug. This is a common side effect and this usually lasts for as long as you are on the drug, once the drug is withdrawn the side effects fade away with time. Most patients improve within the period of 1 to 2 weeks after stopping the drug. Some patients however may have persistent symptoms for upto 4 to 6 weeks after stopping the drug. But to answer your question YES it can improve after stopping the drug.
Do you have anymore questions?
