My psychiatrist is taking me off ziprazidol and changing me

Customer Question

My psychiatrist is taking me off ziprazidol and changing me to lamactil. While I am slowly weaning off ziprazidol and slowly beginning to take lamactil, I feel really sick and uncomfortable. I feel nauseated, I'm achy my neck is stiff and I have a very bad headache. Are these all signs of withdrawal symptoms or something worse?
