Hello welcome to just answer. There are a variety of diseases where you can or can not do that. If you have epilepsy you have to be careful. You can not just stop trileptal and start Dilantin. You need to discuss this with your neurologist because it depends on your AED (anti epileptic drug) levels. What is your problem, why do you want to switch? Is it related to cost? Get back to me. Thanks. Dr. Frank
