Re: How to reduce dilantin

Talk to your dr

Your Dr can help you draw up a plan and decide if it is safe to come off or not. When I came off (and switched meds) I used smaller size Kapsuls over many weeks with a plan drawn up by my Dr. He thought that 50mg/wk was safe, I went with 30mg to be even slower. Talking with your Dr is best advice I can give. Any faster rate will shock the system and possibly cause seizures.

Sometimes we just need to stay on meds, or change therapy.
