Switching from Keppra XR to Zonisamide.. need some help

I am switching from Keppra XR 500 mg (1 in the morning and 2 at night) to Zonisamide 100 mg (1 at night for a wk and 2nd wk start 2 pills).. The dr wants me to wean off of the Keppra XR but never said how he wanted me to and I realized that after I was home and the dr office was closed.

Any ideas of how would be the best way to wean off the Keppra XR??

Thank you

Im also on keppra, but if I were you I would contact your neuro before weaning off just to make sure which way they want you to do it since all individuals hace diferent effects. Best of luck!
