Dilantin for adhd

Common Questions and Answers about Dilantin for adhd

dilantin

book by a vanity publisher came out a while back proclaiming the vcirtues of dilantin for everything from acne to airsickness (joking). The studies regarding dilantin are, to my knowledge, largely anecdotal, and there have not been good double-blind studies regarding the effectiveness of this drug. The trouble is with your situation is that there is a placebo affect, and whether or not your improvement was due to the use of the drug is open to question.
Her Pedi at the time refused to even check her for ADD or ADHD. For two years I tried to get him to check her and he wouldn't do it so I finally changed her Pedi.

When I asked him what happened, he said he had biten himself. This is very unusual behavior for him. He is also getting very angry over nothing. He had a brain tumor removed last October, fortunately it was not malignant. He is on Dilantin 100 mg twice a day. We believe that the Dilantin is causing bad behavior and rage. His MRI is clear and seizure free on his last video EEG. Anyone have experience on taking their kids off Dilantin after brain surgery?
Some years back, I experienced drug toxicity issues with Tegretol, so was then placed on Dilantin and taken off of the other.... I guess my doctor didn't feel dilantin was good enough, so he placed me on a drug that had just cleared the FDA process. This drug was called Trileptol. I had major issues with retaining much water...I would retain a thumb indent for well over ten minutes, and I had no ankles left to speak of.
I have temporal lobe epilepsy (complex-partial and 2ndary generalized). I have been dx'd with ADHD and Bipolar II. I suspect that (in me) all three are one in the same. They are all related to a problem with neurotransmitters (dopamine in particular). They all (for me) create a deficit in the executive functioning part of my thinking process. My "working memory." It's hard to tell what does what.
i have been having seizures since 2008 , i was pregnant and began sick with fever and found out i had a spleen tumor which ended in a partial spleenectomy, after that i began having seizures.

19 years of them before they worsened, and then after a few tests to confirm them, I am prescribed Dilantin and all those funny (peculiar) problems for all those years go away in two days. That was so screwed up. Loss of vision in one eye, while arguing with my wife.
It started when I was 10 I thought then it was because I had adhd and was taking adderal for it. When I was older I started smoking and that would relax me and stop the episode when I would have one. Now that I had quit a year ago the episodes are frequent and severe. I want them to stop.
Klonopin could be for anxiety or as a side effect pill for the Risperal. Concerta is for adhd. Have they confirmed that you absolutely need that? That sounds like the main offender here. Do not make any changes on your own of course but have them do a medication review. Sometimes polypharmacy can be hazardous if not done properly. I should know because when I had two antipsychotics prescribed at once that is how I developed tardive dyskinesia in the first place.
I believe this is for motor coordination (Ataxia) check and balance. When I did it I was standing up.
I started taking topamax about 6 wks ago and am up to 300 mg. Have lost 8lbs. I am on it for seizures. I was on Dilantin for 25 yrs and my dr. wanted to switch meds and I read topamax can cause weight loss and I had put on 15 lbs to I talked him into letting me go on it but I am having my doubts now. I am feeling really psychotic!! I feel sometimes like I am on extacy or some other mind altering drug...I have total feelings of electric currents running thru my body ...
I eat about 500g of yogourt per day and drink 2-3 glasses of milk per day. Topamax alone won't make you lose the weight, it will just make it easier for you to do it on your own. I hope this helps you!! Have a great week!!
and i did for Aug and finally in late August sawa neurologist. It felt for me like i was going a million miles an hour on a roller coaster..it would also cause me to feel like weakness going into my arm. The Neurologist said that this was most likly emotional I knew it was something. However , my MRI was NOt normal, and i have two spots . I came online to see what others had head pressure. Even in one ER thye were baffled w it , and said they had no idea what it was and said it wa snerves.
