What is withdrawal-induced confusion? 

Confusion is a common occurrence for many who come off psychiatric drugs. Typically, people report a feeling of disorientation, an inability to think clearly, disorganized thoughts, difficulty executing simple tasks, difficulty making decisions, or having poor judgment or impulse control. Individuals with this symptom sometimes describe feeling as if they have some form of dementia. Some report even being unable to speak normally or coherently at times, having serious difficulties grasping language, being confused about their location or what time of day it is, getting lost while driving, and even not recognizing familiar faces.
