phenytoin 420 - plain white gel capsule with imprint 420 twice, no other markings

My prescription drug was changed from phenytoin with the purple band to phenytoin plain white with the number 420 printed twice on the capsule; I was told it was fine to take same formula and different manufacturer but when I asked if the fillers were the same the pharmacist stumbled and then said it is ok. Since the medicine was changed without my knowledge or permission by somebody (nobody in the Dr.s office knows how this happened) I am wondering about it. Of course I will ask the doctor again ( I spoke to the nurse before) when I see him - he doesn't take phone calls), but I would like to know something before then. ## Well, first no pharmacy is in any way obligated to always provide you with the product manufactured by any particular company that you have been getting.

phenytoin ex cap 100 mg bright orange capsule writing on taro phn

This generic was given to me when I refilled my RX that had been Mylan 1560 white/lavender capsule. I haven't felt good, blahs, no energy, headache which I finally realized it started around the time I started taking the above medication. ## Hello, Deanna! How are you? I'm sorry about the way you're feeling. There can be slight fluctuations from one generic to another, so this one may have a slightly lower or higher dosage than the prior one. The difference is usually insignificant and your body will usually adjust in about a week or so. Have things improve at all, yet? How are you feeling?

hey need to know

hi, im a female of 23yrs old, im taking eptoin 100mg twice a day one tablet in morning and 2 doses at night,i will be married by september2014, can i take eptoin100mg during my pregnancy time? im taking eptoin100mg from 2007. ## Hi Kutti, Eption (Phenytoin) falls in pregnancy category D here in the USA, which indicates "Positive evidence of risk". So it is advisable to work closely with your doctor during the pregnancy to ensure your child's health. They may decide that the benefits of your medication outweigh the risks, but that is ultimately for you and them to decide since they are going to be familiar with your full medical history. I hope this helps and wish you good health!

And I feel drowsy could this be the millerspas? ## Hi Christiaan, Based on my research, Millerspas contains the active ingredient Phenytoin, which is an anti-epileptic medication. Common side effects of Phenytoin may include: dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, and loss of coordination.
