My husband is switching meds, how long should he not drive?
My husband is on Dilantin (generic now) and has been on it for 26 years. He hasn't had a seizure for 21 years, and that was when he was taken off to see if he needed it.
The Dilantin is causing his liver counts to be high, his level is 81, so his doctor wants him to switch meds. He wants to do an EEG first, so is not switching quite yet. But after he changes meds he's not going to drive for awhile. His job is 48 miles away, but he found someone he can carpool with (he has to change his schedule to do so, but his boss is okay with that).
I will have to drive him back and forth to this man's house, which is about 15 minutes away, and have my kids to take to school too. How long will we need to do this?? His doctor didn't even tell him he had to quit driving, but he and I both feel it's necessary.
