Phenytoin (Dilantin®) is a prescription drug that is used for treating certain types of seizures in people with epilepsy. The medication can help control seizures but will not prevent them from occurring. Phenytoin products come in various forms, including an oral suspension (liquid), chewable tablets, and extended-release capsules.
Some of the factors that can affect the dose of phenytoin that your healthcare provider recommends include the particular phenytoin product, your age and weight, and other medical conditions you may have. Among the side effects that have been reported with phenytoin are unusual eye movements, confusion, slurred speech, and muscle coordination problems.
