A moderate drug interaction does exist between phenytoin and tegretol. You should notify your physician if you experience loss of seizure control or symptoms of phenytoin toxicity (drowsiness, visual disturbances, change in mental status, nausea, or ataxia).
Cigarette smoking will not affect these medications.
