Phenytoin - can this cause a loss of smell & taste or is it more likely to be from a brain aneurysm?

Di-Phen - I had a brain aneurysm clamped and was placed on Phenytoin (generic Dilantin) to prevent seizures. I have lost my sense of smell and taste. Do you know if this could be a side-effect of the drug, or is it more likely from the clamping of the aneurysm?
