: This will probably sound like a stupid question, but I have been reading about how its important to have your Liver checked if you have been taking Dilantin for a long time. Is that done by a blood test?
:: Yes, your neurologist should order a liver function test when he checks your dilantin blood level. Liver function tests are done routinely when someone's on any anticonvulsant. Don't be afraid to ask your doc about the results.
