In Reply to: taking dilantin and smoking marijuana posted by A. on March 21, 2000 at 15:53:25:
: I am currently taking dilantin for a seizure I had back in december. I was told by my neurologist that I can drink in moderation(1 or 2 beers when i go out) but I could not ask him about smoking marijuana. I would like to know if it would be harmful to smoke marijuana while on dilantin. Any info? thanks
No info on smoking marijauna, but seziures are a nuero problem and I have always heard that marijuana destroys brain cells. Personally, if that is true, I would not want to add to my problem by smoking something that messes with my head. You see I also have a seizure disorder and screwing with my head on purpose does not appeal to me. Now do not get me wrong I am not a do gooder that looks down at people who like to have a good time, I enjoy having fun, but in moderation especially now. You see I have two beautiful daughters and a loving husband, whom I do not wish to leave behind any time soon.
