Benadryl and lorazepam are not antipsychotic medications. If you are on high dose of geodon then you have to discuss with your psychiatrist for possible withdrawal symptoms even if you taper the dose slowly. If you are on a small dose, then you can safely taper and stop it in 10 days without the fear of withdrawal. Good luck.
