how to stop use

I am want ing to stop use of this medicine. Wish to have ways of doing so. All at once or day by day Thanks ## Mellaril is an antipsychotic drug, so coming of it cold turkey and without a doctors supervision and assistance can be very dangerous. I suggest speaking to your doctor about the best way to stop this medication.
