Ficus is a plant that doesn't like change and will drop it's leaves if something upsets it. I had them for many years, never fed them and watered sparingly. As Esther says water as normal and hope that the fertiliser is flushed through.

Yep, I also had one, got in 1979 kept it to about 2010, grew to 15 feet, had inside the garden room. Used to take it out on the deck when shorter. Anyway, got tired of it. So dragged it to the deck for one last summer, then left it there. Burn pile got it later.
