About a year ago I had a seizure, It turned out to be brain cancer, I had it cut out and after the doctor put me on Phenytoin to control any more seizures, But over the past month my throat hurts so much I can't swallow anything and my skin has gotten very dry and so thin if I rub it on something it just peels back and looks like a blister, My skin also looks like it has pools of blood under it. I talked to my Doctor about it and he changed my medication to Divalproex , He also increased the mg from 100 on Phenytoin twice a day to 250 mg on Divalproex 3 times a day, I checked side effects and both meds are the same, Can anyone tell me a medication for seizures that don't have the type of side effects I’m having?
