New Psychiatrist: Sounds like you have had a difficult time recently. And that you don't have a good therapeutic relationship with your psychiatrist if you are seeking help in managing your own medications here. Change psychiatrists and find one that you can work with. Your situation seems more complicated than simply how to stop a medication.
