Description 

Dilantin is an anticonvulsant medication that can be used to treat grand mal (tonic-clonic) and psychomotor (temporal lobe) seizures and complex partial seizures, as well as those that occur during or after neurosurgery. This is an extended formula that may be used by children as young as six years old up to adults. Your doctor will select the dosage based on your age, weight, and the severity of your seizures. 

Dilantin Uses 

This medicine is used to treat a variety of seizure disorders, such as focal (partial) seizures, generalized onset seizures, or status epilepticus, and to prevent seizures after neurosurgery and post-traumatic injuries. It prevents seizure activity from spreading throughout the brain.

Frequently Asked Questions  

What is Dilantin Toxicity?  

Toxicity occurs when your body’s levels of this medicine reach dangerously high levels that can cause harm. This medication is used to both prevent and treat seizures. A coma can result from Dilantin toxicity. 

What to avoid while taking Dilantin?  

If you are taking this medication, you should not consume alcohol. Alcohol can cause phenytoin levels in the blood to rise, resulting in even more harmful consequences. Regular alcohol use lowers phenytoin levels in the blood, raising the risk of seizures.
