Gina Says:

I've been on Dilantin for many yrs. Started out taking 300mgs daily. As Dilantin was helping to prevent a seizure. My life has been put on hold. Tried Tegartol, lamictol(put me in a Grandmal Seizure). Had to go back to Dilantin. Was given generic Dilantin. Life seemed to be fine until I was so weak in the hospital with no Dilantin in my blood stream. Also, my potassium and calcium very low. Now it's medically necessary I take brand naned Dilantin300mg also Keppra(1000mg)/ Dilantin400mg w/Keppra1000mg. Alternating days
I'm taking med's as needed but, it's been a prob with levels to low or levels to high.
I am back to just 300mg Dilantin w/1000mg Keppra. Have to get levels repeated in a week. Is it me, the med's and or both? Having a seizure 1st started in a foster home . After having a seizure in state care I was in the hospital for 1-week. Nothing was found. I was quickly shifted out of state care. Been taking medicine since. Probably destroying my insides. "Never" have been able to fulfill my life dreams.
