I went in for my semi-annual check up. My Dilantin
level was checked. It was less than 10. I know I forget
a lot of doses. So, I was to recheck after taking all
doses on time. I take 5 100mg/day. Ten days later the
level is 21.5. I go to 5-4-5-4-5-4-5 for about ten days
and the level is 28.0. I skip two days and start 4/day
for about a week. the level drops to 21.5. I start to
take 4-3-4-3-4-3/day. The level drops to 9.8 with mild
activity for one day.
What can cause the wild fluctuations in the level. Is
there foods or drinks that affect the level?? Will
certain drugs affect the Dilantin level?
