Precaution/SOS medicine after discontinuing dilantin I had first seizure at age 17 followed by second seizure at age 32. I did not take any any anti epillepcy drug inbetween. I had severe head
ache at age 36, and since then I am taking dilantin[100mg],two capsule daily. This medication has continued for last 12 years, with no seizures in between and normal eeg. Most of the doctors advised for life long medication,though some side effects such as erthema nodusum, sluggishness etc. Has been visible for some time. Now I have stopped taking dilantin since last one month.
