: : My wife seemed to stop having fits about 13 years ago. Last Thursday was the first in such a long time. My question is has anyone had experiance of this happening to them. Also any info on PHENATOIN??
: My seizures were controlled with medication for two years, and since I had no spiking/no more problems, I was taken off them. They reappeared five years later for reasons no one knows. No head injury, adverse medical reaction, etc. They were just back. It's a horrible feeling. I've been seizure-free for 6 years, but getting them under control required different medication than the first time. You and your wife have my sympathies.
My doctor just started me on phenytoin (generic for Neurontin), 300 mg. twice a day, increasing to three a day and then four. I feel so drunk I wouldn't dare drive. There is a web site that desrcibes the side effects, etc. www.rxlist.com, and then addon the end/cgi/generic/phenyt.htm to go right to the page on phenytoin. Good luck.
