Has anyone's child weaned off of phenobarbital? My son has been on this since he was 12 months old. He hasn't had a seizure now in 2 years, so we're trying to wean him off the meds. He has been hyper-sensitive about EVERYTHING lately. Cries at the drop of a hat. We are weaning slowly, over a 6-month time period. Does anyone know if these symptoms could be due to the med withdrawal, or is this just normal 3-year-old stuff?
