Since I have started taking more of it daily it seems like I am awfully sleepy a lot of the time, at least more than I was.
Yes it does make me more sleepy my Doctor increased my dose from 330mg to 430mg and after about an hour I can hardly stay awake I take my medicine in the evening and am still groggy for hours after I wake up.I have been taking dilantin for 2 years and take several medicines. I found it surprising that an increase in Dilantin has had more side effects than my commencing dose of 330mg. Since I have been on Dilantin I still have fits and often feel like I may be having another.
