Uses
Dilantin (Phenytoin Sodium) is an anti-seizure medicine (also called an anticonvulsant) which is used as a treatment for epileptic seizures, including tonic-clonic seizures (often referred to as grand mal epilepsy) and complex partial seizures (including temporal lobe or psychomotor seizures). It is also indicated for the prevention and treatment of seizures which may occur either during or after surgery on the brain has taken place.

Treatment with this medicine aims to prevent the occurrence of epileptic seizures by preventing overstimulation of the brain function. It achieves this by stopping sodium from building up in the brain's nerve cells, resulting in stable electrical activity in the brain. In some cases, this drug has been used for trigeminal neuralgia, a condition which causes nerve pain to occur on the face.

Dosage and Administration
Dilantin (Phenytoin Sodium) comes as 100mg capsules, which are swallowed whole alongside a glass of water. You must not chew the capsule or crush it. As every patient's condition is different, the dosage requirements will also vary from patient to patient. It is possible that your doctor will tell you to start treatment with a low dosage, and your dosage may then be gradually increased. Never exceed the prescribed dosage, as this could be dangerous and may even require immediate medical care.

Side effects
Side effects of Dilantin (Phenytoin Sodium) include:

  • Tremors
  • Pain affecting the penis
  • Gum overgrowth
  • Speech problems
  • Coordination difficulties

It is important that you tell your doctor about any side effects which occur during treatment. Some patients treated with this drug may experience serious reactions. You must call your doctor straight away if you experience blisters, sore joints, appetite loss or any other signs of a serious reaction.

Precautions
Consuming alcoholic beverages while undergoing treatment with this drug can increase the levels of the medication in your blood, which may result in serious complications. Talk to your doctor about this.

In some cases, treatment with this drug may lead to softer bones, which could result in broken bones.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Dilantin (Phenytoin Sodium) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:
