After being seizure free for 15yrs on Dilantin level 2.3 my dr said i can wean off will my body know the difference from 400mg to 300mg when cutting ?

After being seizure free for 15yrs on Dilantin level 2.3 my dr said i can wean off will my body know the difference from 400mg to 300mg when cutting ?

Doctor knows best...: One should follow the doctor's instructions when weaning a medication. One's body can tell some difference if a medication is dropped by 25%, but the question is whether or not that difference matters. If the difference produces no symptoms of significance, then it may not matter. After 15 long years, one can wean a bit slower if worried about the weaning. ...Read more

CALL : Call 911 ! if i knew where you were, i would have called them by now myself! your mum is at severe, extreme risk of death - especially if she falls asleep ! please do not hesitate any longer ! the most common cause of death in that kind of overdose is the person falls asleep and stops breathing - game over ! she is also at extreme risk of vomitting in her sleep, and choking to death on the vomit ! do you really want your mum to die that way, right in front of your eyes ?!? Please, call 911 now ! if you need help caring for your self and your brothers, the social worker at the hospital can help you with that.

How can i stop metabolism(or whatever) from making me fat? Age 12, height 5,5" weight 75. I don't even eat a lot.

How can i stop metabolism(or whatever) from making me fat? Age 12, height 5,5" weight 75. I don't even eat a lot.

Healthy diet: If you had hormonal testing showing that your thyroid and pituitary are working, then it isn't your metabolism making you gain weight. More likely, it is the kind of food you eat, rather than how much. Focus on getting a diet heavily loaded with fruits, veggies and whole grains. Limit red/processed meats and cheese. Eliminate sugar drinks and fast/processed foods altogether. Exercise every day! ...Read more
