Stopping antidepressants suddenly is not dangerous per se, however you may experience withdrawal symptoms such as headache, "brain fog", depression, anxiety and uncomfortable sensations in the body. It can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks for the symptoms to subside. Typically when antidepressants are discontinued the dose is lowered slowly to avoid the unpleasant symptoms.
