I am 28 years old, I have been taking dilantin for 15yrs now, am nervous unbalance when walking, knees are weak, head ache sometimes, and stiffness in both lower legs at the lower back of my knees, at times I still have seisures while taking this med. I love dairy products very much, but when I have milk especially, I have to be close to the rest room at all times, or else I mess myself up. Thank god for mom will I get better or ever be a normal person? Will I take this meds for the rest of my life, and why do I have so meny problems.
