Dogmatil: Dogmatil is an antipsychotic. A gradual taper of any medication you've been on for 7 years is probably better than suddenly stopping. Sudden changes with Dopamine could cause neurological symptoms. I'd also wonder what condition you had/have that resulted in receiving this prescription? Please discuss with your own physician -- decision to taper should be a joint process.
