What are withdrawal-induced balance problems, dizziness, and vertigo?

It is common for people to experience balance problems, dizziness, or vertigo as a symptom of psychiatric drug withdrawal. Typically, people report feeling woozy, unsteady, or dizzy. Sometimes, it may feel like one’s surroundings are spinning. Some individuals also have nausea when this symptom is present. These withdrawal symptoms can be so severe, some people are unable to leave their bed.
