Similar to Dilantin, Without Swelling the Gums

I've been taking phenobarbital 100mg twice a day for 30yrs and dilantin 100mg tablets 3 times a day for absent seizures for over 20yrs. But my gums are very swollen. About 6 months ago my doctor switched it to keppra 500 mg but I had anxiety attacks, so now I'm back to dilantin. Today I stopped taking dilantin and I'm only taking phenobarbital 100mg twice a day. I need another medicine that works the same as dilantin but without swelling my gums...

I have been on Dilantin for years and have EXCELLENT gums. Do you floss and brush right after you eat anything?

I do floss and brush every time I eat, but I started getting swollen gums about six months ago.
