I'm on a maintenance dose of 5 mg aripiprazole per day. Given that this is a sub-optimal dose, would it be reasonable to try stopping it someday?

I was severely psychotic towards the end of 2017 following which I was hospitalized and started on 2 mg risperidone. The psychiatrists at the hospital wanted to increase the risperidone dosage, but I refused knowing the side-effects of antipsychotics.Sorry if I've missed your posts explaining it but why did they put you on Aripiprazole?
I'm on 10mg to prevent psychosis even though I'm well now, seen too many people come off the drugs only to relapse so I'm staying on it.
