: : Have any of you been taking phenobarb and dilantin for 20 years or more? Have any of you noted any negative side affects such as drowsiness, impaired cognitive abilities, depression, and/or sexual dysfunction?

: Dr. Love, I have been taking dilantin & phenobarb for almost exactly 20 yrs. I hadn't realized until recently that some of the problems I have been having, which I hadn't associated with medication, might actually be attributable to Dilantin/Phenobarb. Yes to drowsiness, impaired cognitive abilities, no to depression & sexual dysfunction. I also have joint pain which I learned recently might be related to Dilantin.
I, too, have experienced the joit pain as well..
