Witdrawal symptoms antipsychotics

Anyone experience withdrawal symptoms when lowering the dose of antipsychotics. I am experiencing heavy withdrawals headache fever, lightheadedness any idea when this will pass I am on risperidone 3mg down from 4mg.

I don’t know about headaches and fever, but my sleep got lighter when I reduced my Paliperidone to 3 mg from 6mg. Paliperidone is a metabolite of Risperidone.

Short term prescription of Diazepam really helped me when I was getting them. It made my anxiety levels plummet. Worth asking about if your suffering a bit.
