Hi Nishafatima, This is a

Hi Nishafatima,

This is a question you need to discuss with the psychiatrist (or other medical professional) who prescribed the amisulpride for you. (I do hope, if you have schizophrenia, that you are under the care of a psychiatrist.)

There are many different antipsychotic medications that are used to treat schizophrenia. Your psychiatrist can discuss those with you. I strongly recommend that you talk to your prescribing doctor before making any changes (including stopping) with your current medication. Some medications are dangerous to stop abruptly and need to be tapered slowly to prevent or reduce potential withdrawal effects.

As for any potential withdrawal effects of Amisulpride; I can't answer that because I am not familiar with this particular antipsychotic medication. It is not approved for use here in the U.S.

I'm sorry I can't be more help. Only a trained medical professional, who knows your personal medical history, is qualified to advise you regarding your medication. It would be a good idea for your gynecologist to talk to the doctor who's prescribing your amisulpride. But regardless, you also need to contact your prescribing doctor so he or she can advise you regarding the best course of action for you to take. If that means stopping this medication and starting a new one, then that should be done under his or her direct care.
