how to guit phenytoin

Posted by Joeal

I had brain surgery Jan. 6th. The hospital nurse and huose Dr put me on Phenytoin because they thought I was having a seizure. The surgeon 6 months later tells me I did NOT have a seizure, but what he called a focal. The surgeon told me that I was not a candiate for a seizure and that I should have NEVER been put on an anti-seizure medication. I started having migrane headaches shortly after starting Phenytoin. I was put on 3 100mg capsules a day in the evening. I have stopped taking one pill, and the migranes have eased. I have been on two pills for the last 3 weeks with no effect. How long do I take two before I drop down to one., and then how long before I quit just one and thake none?
