: : : Anyone taking Dilantin experience cold hands and feet? Did anything help? Thanks
: I have been on dilantin since 1967, the way my temperture runs is if the outside temp is hot then I feel like a glowing ember,if it's cold my hands and feet feel like ice, just ask my wife.
: : I have always had cold hands and feet and never really thought about it until i saw your message. Ihave now been on Dilantin for 18 years and am starting to get numbness in hands and feet. Find out now if Dilantin can cause neuropathy. If it does, you can stop it by switching meds every few years. or what ever the doc says.
Found out it does cause peripheral neuropathy. Sounds like we both need to get off fast. Good luck.
