Wow, I can't believe this happened to someone besides me. I just started taking Dilantin last November and that was one of the things I first noticed once all of the other side effects started to go away (the drowsiness, dry skin etc.) I would wake up in the morning and remember this AMAZINGLY detailed techni-color dreams!! I don't notice it so much anymore, or maybe I just got used to it, not sure.. but it is interesting to see someone else with that side effect. I'm also curious to see what a neurologist has to say about this.
: Hubby and I are both on Dilantin, and we have been since about seven years old (he's 30 and I'm 28). Ever since we've been on Dilantin, almost EVERY NIGHT, we have very vivid, movie-like dreams that we can recall in detail every time we wake up. These are dreams that not even the most creative writer can come up with. These are not just silly dreams; these seem so REAL.
: My question is this: does anybody out there on Dilantin have such dreams as this? Also, if a neurologist is reading this, can Dilantin have the potential for causing such dreams?
