What are the side effects of Eptoin 300 ER ? My Sister was advised to take this in stead of 3 regular Eptoin 100 Mg. Is there any additional advantage ? ## Eptoin contains the active ingredient Phenytoin, it is an anti-epileptic, used to help prevent seizures. The side effect profile does not change when a dosage is altered, however, taking more at once or raising the dosage may cause them to be more severe for a few weeks, until her body adjusts to the medication. These may include: nausea, drowsiness, mild skin rash, itching and insomnia. The advantage to taking the 300mg ER tablet is that it is a time released formulation, so it is specially formulated to work for the entire day, so she gets the control she needs, without having to remember to take multiple pills each day.

Post a Reply
My wife now aged 65, was operated for brain haemorrhage on 1st May 2016, slightly more than 1 year ago. The brain haemorrhage had started after she had accidentally hit the water tap in the bathroom, when getting up from cleaning the floor. After severe headache indicated something very serious, she was examined and operated in Fortis Hospital, Kalyan, India. The operation has been a success. Presently, she takes one tab of Eptoin 100 in the morning, after breakfast and one tab in the night after dinner. No other medicines except one tab of multivitamin tablet ' Becosule ' at night. She is basically fine except that she is more irritable than in the past. At times her left leg aches. What should we do now ? Reduce the dosage ? and how ? Follow up visit to the surgeon is due soon bu ...

You are on normal dosages of it, in the U.S. it is used in amounts as high as 600mgs per dosage. Eptoin contains the active ingredient Phenytoin. It is used in dosages as high as 300mgs per dose, so you're not taking a crazy amount of it, either. Have you spoken to your doctor about your concerns? ## i know the dosage is not high but i feel some side effects like nystagmus and pain in shoulder and right limb. actully the anomaly is near the motor region of the left parietal lobe. so till december i had some sentional lapse i... ...

My son is using eptoin since 3-4 years, right now his level is on toxic alert, about to know the precautions ## Eptoin contains the active ingredient Phenytoin, it is most commonly used as an anti-epileptic. Did his doctor give you any instructions? Usually this results in their lowering his dosage or even discontinuing the medication for a few days and then retesting. This is even done when it is used as a mood stabilizer, to prevent the toxic levels from occurring, because they can lead to serious health problems. ## Doctor Advise him to reduce the eptoin 100 mg thrice to twice, and also warn to take well care of him, may be he will face one or two attacks within a week. I want to know that is there any other kind of treatment is available ?? because he is facing side effects of eptio... ...
