Side Effects
My mouth is totally ruined by the dilantin. Too many root canals, swollen gums bad enough to hurt. I am 35 and need partials/upper and lower as I have lost more then 1/2 my teeth in 10 yrs.

Additional Thoughts
It works well with some. I have tried to get off but nothing else works. Trileptal, lamictal,..and the seizures would increase. But side effects are just horrible. But, life could always be worse. Right?
