Dilantin is an anticonvulsant drug that controls seizures by slowing certain impulses in the brain.

Swallow capsule whole. Do not break or chew capsules.
Only chewable Dilantin tablets may be chewed.
Discard any capsules that have changed color.
Don’t discontinue use suddenly. This can cause increased seizures.
Brush and floss teeth regularly. Dilantin can cause swelling in gums.
Talk to your doctor if you become pregnant. Do not discontinue Dilantin without your doctor’s guidance.
Dilantin may cause thoughts of suicide.
Patients of Asian ancestry have a higher risk of developing a skin reaction, and may need blood tests to assess this risk.
Before taking Dilantin, inform your doctor if you have any of the following:
Abnormal heart rhythm, slow heartbeats, or AV block
Vitamin D deficiency
Depression or thoughts of suicide
Alcoholism or large alcohol intakes
Common side effects of Dilantin include:
Dizziness, confusion, drowsiness, nervousness
Loss of balance or coordination, tremors, slurred speech
Contact your doctor if you experience these more serious side effects:

Skin rash or bruising

Can I drink alcohol while taking Dilantin?
Alcohol should be avoided while you’re taking Dilantin. Drinking can cause an increase in blood levels of the medication, and might increase your risk of side effects. If you drink alcohol regularly while on Dilantin, the medication may actually become less effective, leading to a higher risk of seizures.
Should I stop taking Dilantin if I become pregnant?
Talk to your doctor immediately. Don’t stop taking Dilantin unless your doctor advises you to. This medication could harm an unborn baby, but having seizures during pregnancy is also dangerous. Your doctor will assess your condition if you become pregnant.

What's the difference between generic drugs and brand name drugs?
What's the difference between the branded products you sell and the ones I get locally?
The branded drugs we sell are chemically and therapeutically no different from the ones you get in your local pharmacy. They both generally come from the same exact manufacturer. Generally, the main difference* is in the packaging and the price. Our packaging may be different from what you get locally, but we're also much cheaper.
* Other differences may include differences in trade name, form, and general appearance.
Why are there packaging differences?
Due to differences in government regulation, different countries have different packaging requirements. For example, a product in Canada (or any other country) will have different packaging than the same product in the US even though both drugs are chemically and therapeutically equivalent and are generally manufactured by the same exact company.
Why are your drugs so much cheaper?
Due to government price controls, medications from Canada and many other countries are often significantly cheaper than in the United States. Also, other countries may have more affordable generic versions of drugs, which may not yet be available in the US.
