Re: Any Long Term Dilantin Users Out There?
I've been taking Dilantin about 15 years. I don't think I've had any real bad side effects from it at all. My current epileptologist wanted to take me off dilantin and try Keppra but taking dilantin, keppra, lamictal and zonegran and I'm still not controled so I'm taking all of it. I had broken bones but not from dilantin. My ex set up obstical courses around the bed so I would fall and break things. I broke my hip in the ER one night. I lost my leg in 99 and if I have a seizure at night and try to get up in the post ictal state, I fall. If I were you I would get the tests for bone density and find out how your doing. Good luck and I hope you can stay controled
