Take this in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor and if you have missed a dose, take it as soon as you remember. This medication must not be stopped suddenly without talking to your doctor as it may worsen your symptoms. However, discontinue this medicine immediately if you experience neuroleptic malignant syndrome, characterized by fever, muscle rigidity, and altered consciousness or seizures.
