I came off aripiprazole in Dec '11. I'd been taking it for just over a year.
I stopped it cold turkey, no problems whatsoever.
Good luck, hope it goes well for you. smile

When I first started taking it I was in the throes of psychosis so wasn't really aware of any side effects. After a few weeks I noticed that my vision was a a bit blurry sometimes but that's the only side effect I can recall and it didn't last very long. I used to take them at night because I thought they made me drowsy too.

Didn't notice any withdrawl symptoms.

I took 10mg daily for 15 months.
