This website DOES NOT constitute treatment and only provides information and advice in a Q&A format. For treatment (therapy and/or medications) you must go to a licensed professional in your area. Please note that anything said here is not private or confidential, as this is a public forum. Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. The answer to your question is yes your current psychiatrist can stop your medication until you find a new psychiatrist, but it is not very ethical or recommended as you could develop withdrawal symptoms as it takes time to find a new psychiatrist. But overall the answer to your question is yes
