I've found over the years that almost every psychiatric medicine has some sort of withdrawal effects. Some are so severe that people in up in the ER or hospital. Often they are told the medication withdrawal is actually their symptoms coming back - instead of a reaction to not taking the medication. This happened to me and I ended up spending 5 days a psychiatric hospital due to the effects that coming off a medication had on me. Doctors will continually deny that any psychiatric medication has withdrawal effects. I feel like they turn us into prescription drug addicts to put money in their pockets.
