Dilantin is indicated for handling of certain types of seizures. It can also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.
Use Dilantin as ordered by your therapeutist. To avoid stomach upset take Dilantin with a meal. Use each dose at the same time with respect to meals. Use Dilantin with a full glass of water unless pre-scripted otherwise. These tablets can either be chewed thoroughly before being swallowed or swallowed whole.
Dilantin may cause somnolence, giddiness, or blurred vision. These effects may worsen if Dilantin is taken with alcohol or certain other medications. Take Dilantin with caution. Don't drive or perform other possibly dangerous tasks until you know how you respond to this drug. If your symptoms do not improve or if they worsen, ask your physician. This drug should be used only by the patient for whom it has been directed. Don't take less or more or take it more often than directed by your doctor.
