Did you quit cold turkey? Because it sounds like withdrawal symptoms of fluoxetine. It would be good to contact your doctor and tell them you got withdrawal symptoms, so they keep an eye on you. Some people can have a little problem quitting SSRI and you can get withdrawal symptoms.

Even though you was on it for a short while there are still chances to get withdrawal symptoms when quitting too fast. Because SSRI have an impact on the serotonin levels within your brain. I hope you will feel better soon and that the withdrawal symptoms ease up soon. But make sure to talk with your health professional.
