Must restart meds: My firm and immediate recommendation is that you go back on your medication so that you don't have any type of withdrawal symptoms at all. Hallucinations are absolutely no fun. Your dose of Risperidone is very low and you're on a very moderate dose of zoloft (sertraline). If you're having difficulty with side effects of the medication please contact your psychiatrist to discuss it with him immediately. Never stop the medication precipitously on your own. Best wishes.

DON'T STOP MEDS!: Never stop drugs "cold turkey, " and never decrease or stop drugs without consulting with your health care practitioner. (unless it is an emergency.) there can be very serious side effects. Call your doctor or go to the emergency room right away. P.S. -there is a reason these medications were prescribed for you. Discuss this with you doctor, please!
