: Here's a new one for everybody. Whenever my family is outdoors during mosquito season, my husband and daughter are bitten repeatedly by the pesky critters, yet I never get bitten. I've seen them land on me, then fly off. Maybe the Dilantin, Depakote, Lamictal, and Folic Acid give off a scent they don't like. Anybody else have this happen to them? I consider it a blessing in disguise, due to living in the south.
Cindy G. Before I was married, I shared a room with my brother. He often told me that while he was swatting mosquitos all night, he would see them land on my neck and face and back, and immediately fly away. until I saw your message, I have never connected this to the Dilantin I was taking. Thanks, Tom
