Dilantin may cause dormancy, dizziness, or blurred vision. These effects can worsen if Dilantin is taken with alcohol or certain other medications. Use Dilantin with caution. Do not drive or perform other possibly unsafe tasks until you know how you react to this medication. If your symptoms do not improve or if they worsen, consult with your physician. This pill should be used only by the patient for whom it has been directed. Do not take less or more or take it more often than ordered by your doctor.
