Discussions that mention phenytoin

Epilepsy board

Since my first GM seizure in 2001, I also developed high BP, aches and pains all over, and I haven't slept well all night through. I gained weight with no explaination... I thought it was the phenytoin or the diovan causing it.
Yesterday, the doc said sleep apnea could cause all of my symptoms plus a lot more. So, I thought I'd try the mask. Maybe I will go for the surgery later. I really don't want to rely on the mask for the rest of my life unless I have too. The surgery is called somnoplasty, and recovery is quick.
