After many years of no seizures. I'm 58 yr old female. Began having seizures soon after birth. My Neurologist has given me a schedule to stop taking Dilantin. I have been seizure free for around 15 years. No doctor recommended or suggested tapering or stop the medicine until recently. I have been taking 500mg for many years. EEG was normal recently. So tapering began last week. First week 4 daily. This week I am taking 3 daily, then 2 daily, then 1 daily then 0. I told the doctor that seems quick. He said Why? I told him, I am terrified of having a seizure. He said it is very unlikely. I still have the underlying concern of a seizure and loss of my license. Any thoughts are appreciated. I live in Texas.
