will i be okay?
I agree with our bright nurse, kaismama, never ever stop Dilantin cold turkey, this could cause some serious problems. You could have a seizure, not a good thing, so please, call your doctor if you're having any problems with this medication, there might be something that will be better for you.
Best wishes to you,
I am also on 400mgs of Dilantin daily amongst other AEDs. Just this past week I saw my neuro and she added keppra. I asked if I would have to stay on the other two ( Dilantin and phenobarbital ) and she said there was a possibility I could get off the Dilantin in time but it would have to be tapered. I see others have said the same thing on tapering but wanted to share that as it was just this week my dr said it.
I wish you the best and many seizure free days,
