Antipsychotic withdrawal

Is this possible? I became psychotic about 1-2 days after stopping my medication. Is this related or is it just part of sz to become psychotic.

Idk same boat here

I’m no expert, but I think it is probably related. Some antipsychotics leave your system faster than other antipsychotics.

I have to take my pills regularly, same time every night. I miss them for a couple days and I start feeling horrible.

I don’t know if that is medication withdrawal.

If you stop an antipsychotic and become psychotic that is just a loss of the therapeutic effect of the meds you were on.

Withdrawal symptoms include things like insomnia, tachycardia, dizziness, nausea, etc…

When I quit olanzapine I had all kinds of weird withdrawal symptoms, but they all eventually went away. I am left with insomnia. I switched to a different antipsychotic to deal with psychosis, but I still had all kinds of weird withdrawal symptoms after quitting olanzapine.
