: : Does anyone know if taking dilantin long term can start a neuropathy? Aside from the tingling in my hands and feet (feet mostly), I had one episode of blurred vision, dizziness and numbness on the right side of the body.
: Yes. I have been a long term Dilantin user (15 years!)I am just now getting off this medication & feel like God has given me my life back. All the above symptoms happened to me -very gradually until I finally realized I was having a very long flu 1 1/2 yrs. Anyway, get off that crap...yesterday! Keep looking foward-epilepsy seizure management is an art as well as a science, but remenber, you are the sculpter.
