i have been prescribed this drug for over 30 years for contol of epilepsy. I read that a rare side effect can be peripheral neuropathy. Anyone else know anything on this or have experience? My neurologist has put into train a drug regime which results in the dropping of phenytoin for lamotrogine.

  • My neurologist has me on Dilatin to control the tingling from my neuropathies. We tried reducing it and the tingling worsened. I had to go back on it. I hope your new med is working.
