I had two Grand Mal seizures in the early 80's. After the second one my doctor put me on Dilantin,
400 mg per day, and I have never had another seizure. I also have not experienced any side-effects from
the Dilantin, other than some memory loss and fatigue.
Two years ago I switched neurologists. The new doctor is now suggesting that, because there are
potential Liver problems fron long-term use of Dilantin, I may want to come-off it. He is leaving it up to me.
He also says there is a 50-50 chance I could have another seizure. After I come-off the Dilantin he wants
to put me on Neurontin for a year.
Anybody out there have any similar experience? Any info on Neurontin? Please feel free to e-mail me.
