I am sorry about your problems. I have epilepsy and am on zonegran and keppra. So I can't speak to anything about dilantin. But I would not be suprised with any side-effects with any of these drugs we are taking. I am losing my hair and just started getting back acne. Both I have never had my whole life until now.
So I just wanted to say, I am sorry I can't help your question, but I want you to know that there of hundreds of people that read this and we don't know what to say. I just wrote back because I am here every day and I hate to see when someone has a question and gets no response. I am just saying everyting will be ok to you. I had a stroke and then epilepsy because of it and take a handful of pills a day now. I am just writing to tell you that you have others that understand and you are not alone.
