I have been taking Dilantin for the past 26 years without any seizure. The insurance company just told me that they would no longer pay for the brand name, insisting that generic versions of Dilantin are now very safe. I heard many stories where people with a long history of seizure-free life getting seizures once they switched from Dilantin to generics. Honestly, I'm very scared, but I really have no other options at this point (my appeal was declined). Can anyone provide advice on: how to transition from Dilantin to a generic (do you stop taking Dilantin at once and start taking generics? Or do you combine Diantin with generic pills and transition over time?) Thanks!
I had no problem whatsoever!
