Question Minor Head injury and Symptoms of Seizures

Friends,

2 years back at around 11:00 PM I was about to sleep . Since the room was not well ventilated I took a deep breadth.
I dont know what happen - I felt gloomy and fell down unconscious and had a injury in my head.
Took an EEG and the doctors said there is a very small problem and prescribed Phenytoin tablets 200 mg daily for 3 years.

Even now when I take a deep breadth I feel gloomy . So I always sit down while doing this.

Q1 - Is getting gloomy or feeling like fainting common when we take a deep breadth ?
Q2 - Should I really continue with the Phenytoin for the time prescribed ?

I am taking Sertraline 200 mg everyday for Obsessive compulsive Disorder ( a kind of depression). Would this tablet have created such a problem of getting gloomy when taking a deep breadth ?
