Hi all, I came across this site googling symptoms you get when coming off of Amisulpride. I'm down to 50mg after slowly coming down from 400mg to 200mg to 100mg the past three months. I've not noticed any problems until this last reduction where i've been feeling irritable and aggressive, colours are also brighter. I'm finding it hard to tell the difference between hypomania and withdrawal effects. I'm coming off as i'm going to eventually start lamotrigine, i'm going to ask to start it anyway. I'm reducing this med with my GP and he will contact my old psychiatrist for me when i want to start something else. I've had to come off amisulpride due to raised prolactin levels and the problems associated with that. I'm really worried about what is happening to me. Scared of going high but terrified of the agitated depression i always end up with, where i usually take an overdose or several. I'm just scared of what is ahead. I'm happy to not be so sedated, so squashed, but i just hate that everytime i reduce meds i run into problems. I wish i could be without meds completely but this has never been possible in the past. I hate what this reduction is doing to my brain and am not sure i can cope with this irritability and aggressive i now have. Amisulpride has had me compliant and too chilled for the year i've been taking it.
