Get off it: Dilantin should be relegated to history. It is an old drug of high toxicity and major problems with use. Talk to your doctor about getting off or at least changing to a newer and safer seizure medication.

Hypnosis okay: Hypnosis would be safe for you to try. You have been posting multiple questions concerning your worries about seizure many years ago, about drug use now causing seizures, etc. So most of all i hope you do see a psychiatrist and therapist to help you with your anxiety. Hypnosis may help also, and it is safe. Please stay away from recreational drugs and alcohol, though.
