Red face Epilepsy drugs cause ur face to look different and weird looking? Is it true?



I was reading a brochure the other day about an epilepsy drug and they say that one of the side effects is that it makes ur face look weird and different. I was so happy, finally someone knows what I have being going through, except that I take antipsychotics for the treatment of my schizophrenia and they make my face look weird and different too. Has anyone ever experienced this? How did u solve this problem. Please share ur opinion! Thanks!

You might be refering to "coarsening of facial features" which is a possible side effect of Dilantin (Phentoin). It made my face appear 'gaunt', but not 'wierd, for while I was taking it.
