It sounds like it is having issues with its roots, likely from the overwatering which may have led to root rot. Only water when the top of the soil is dry.

After the issue it corrected, the leaves may regrow on the lower half. This article will help with other suggestions: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/rubber-tree/rubber-tree-plant-leaves-falling-off.htm
