: Hi Lynn, I have been taking Dilantin And Phenobarital for twenty years. Eight months ago I gave birth to my third child, all three were born without any defects or cpmplications.If you would like to discuss this e-mail PUMA266@aol.com
I have been on Dilantin for 25 years, 18 of those on phenobarb as well. I had a healthy daughter 16 years ago. The only info I've since gathered has to do with the fact that phenobarb is not advised in that it is passed through in breast milk. I now know why she slept so well from an early age. However,none of my doctors ever spoke up to me about it.
