Has anyone ever had their dilantin level go up quickly?
I've been on dilantin for epilepsy for 48 years. I've never had an issue with it. The blood levels hand always been within normal range. This year they went way up and I figured it was because of the neurotin I was taking for pain. I stopped taking it and the level came down from 36 to 25. Now he wants me to reduce the medicine to 200 mg a night instead of 300 mg. I'm very hesitant to do this as I haven't had a seizure in years. I can't imagine what made it jump out of range after 48 years. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm thinking I'll ignore my doctor (PCP) and keep taking 300 mg
