Common brand names for this type of medicine include Dilantin, Phenytek, and Epanutin (in the UK), but it is also sold using the name phenytoin or phenytoin sodium. Using generic medicines rather than brand-name ones is often suggested as a way. A seizure is the manifestation of an abnormal, hypersynchronous discharge of a population of cortical neurons. This discharge may produce subjective symptoms or objective signs, in which case it is a clinical seizure, or it may be apparent only on an electroencephalogram (EEG), in which case it is an electrographic (or subclinical) seizure. Clinical seizures are usually classified according to. shown efficacy in the early treatment of status epilepticus.

And up to 70% (7 in 10) people with epilepsy could have their seizures completely controlled with AEDs.   ABSTRACT. Objective: Long-term use of phenytoin (PHT) causes gingival hyperplasia; however, little is known about the oral side effects of other antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). Through a systematic review of the literature, we explored the effects . Methods:A total of 25 patients aged between 18 and 50 years, clinically diagnosed with epilepsy prior to the start of phenytoin therapy were included based on selection criteria and written informed consents were obtained. Assessment of serum folic acid levels and gingival enlargement was done prior to the start of and after 6 months of.
