: : 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
Well, I am not a doctor, but I do smoke. Dilantin is/can be very difficult to tolerate. My neuro's know I smoke, for me I am able to eat and sleep. The stuff wires me out, so I smoke to gear down and so food takes good enough to eat it. Do tell your neuro, it's important your neuro knows everything!
