Withdrawal from mirtazapine after 5 days on 3.75mg

Edited , 3 users are following.

hello, i was put on 3.75 mg mirtazapine for depression, with the dosage to be increased gradually. i took the medicine for only 5 days because i found that it caused jerks in my body, kind of like an electric shock.i stopped from yesterday. after that I couldn't sleep and today i feel more anxious than usual. I am already taking clonazepam for anxiety and panic.

Can this medicine cause withdrawal in symptoms when taken for such a short period and at such a low dose? Please help me, please do.
