Hi, I am 25 year old. I had a problem on 3rd july 2006 and i was admitted to hospital and found suffering from Neurocysticercosys.
After that I was having Eptoin 100 mg tablets thrice a day for 2 years and then i stopped taking the tablets. Since 10 months i am not taking any tablets and there was no sybol of unconciousness also within this period of time. My Doctor suggested me to do EEG test but I have not yet done.
Can you please advice me is there any chances of problem due to this.

Eptoin contains the active ingredient Phenytoin, commonly sold in the US under the brand name Dilantin.

This is an anti-epileptic drug, which is also sometimes used to treat trigeminal neuralgia and some cardiac arrhythmias.

Some common side effects may include: nystagmus, drowsiness, reduction in folic acid levels and while it is rare, it has been known to cause drug induced Lupus.

You can read more about it here:

http:/­/­www.medschat.com/­wiki/­Phenytoin/­

That said, there is really no way to say for certain, if this drug caused any of the problems you are all asking about. this site is not medical professionals, so we can't guess.

It is possible, but it is also possible they are caused by other medical conditions or other medications.

Is there anything else I can help you with?

I'm epileptic but not under medication. I got my EEG and MRI done and the reports says The hippocampal formation on the right side of the brain is less than the left side (or vice versa). Can someone please explain to me how can I get rid of these seizures ?? I was under medication. The tablets were Trioptal 300mg X 3/day and Levera 1gm dosage/day. Since I started the medicine, I faced severe side effects. I started forgetting things in 15 mins of time span. I finally had to stop the medication and now one of the Neurosurgeons is asking me to start taking eptoin. Would just like to get rid of this problem... really fed-up now.

Medicine both are same that's Phenitoin which is in the tablets but companies are different Eptoin 100mg from abott. Epsolin 100mg from Zydus. present i am using celetoin 300mg one per day. so i am advice to people who r using Eptoin 100mg stop the Eptoin 100 mg and use Epsolin 100mg from Zydus company. one thing just observe the Eptoin100mg smell 1st seal opened day after 3days smell will changed. but Epsolin not changing by experience i m telling.
