I know it is one of the older medications out there. I would like to know positive or negative experiences you had while taking this drug.
I was on dilantin for 30 years... until my blood work came back showing my liver affected by the Dilantin. So neuro took me off of Dilantin asap! Since then 10 years Ive been on a roller coaster ride of seizure meds. 2 years no meds. Now seizures came back but with more dejavuu seizures. I am wondering if Dilantin a person can go back on it? Or is Dilantin not so safe anymore??
I'm on several epilepsy meds and have been warned that pregnancy could be dangerous and high risk. My seizures are still uncontrolled, mostly complex partial/secondarily generalized. Was wondering if any women suffering from uncontrolled seizures and/or on Dilantin, Vimpat and/or Lamictal have had children, and if so, what your experiences were? I want kids more than anything :(
I took Dilantin for a few years as a child. I'm not sure why my doctor switched me from Dilantin to Tegretol, but I'm assuming it's because I broke through on it. I really liked it, but I suppose what I'm on now is best for controlling my seizures.
when i was a child (10-16) years old i was prescribed but when i left school the doctors changed my medication. why was this when mysoline was controlling my epilepsy. whilst on mysoline i was having 1 maybe 2 fits aweek but since they change my medication my fits have increased and i am unable to work
