This article says it caused someone to not be able to sleep, and sleep deprivation can lead to psychosis? ... ithdrawal/
You might also look at and ask?

If you do a brief google search for 'SSRI/SNRI withdrawal causing psychosis' a lot of links pop up - some in general for antidepressants - have you looked through that yet?

I know that withdrawal from antipsychotics can cause psychosis... (I read up on my meds, googled 'med name + withdrawal symptoms', maybe you can find some info that way too?)

I would look at Peter Breggin's work, if you are not familiar with him. He is an anti-drug renegade Psychiatrist. One book of his is called "Your Drug May Be Your Problem". I found him to be useful.
