Honestly I have heard the most/worst side effects from Dilantin, so I would think that any other meds will seem better. But I have no experience with Dilantin. It is sad, but it is truly trial and error. I have been on seizure meds since a few days before my surgery, so I often wonder if it is the surgery or meds that are making me “dumb.” Good luck with new meds. I have been on the trial and error method for almost a year, but Keppra has been the only one I have stayed on this long. I am very sensitive to meds, so I usually can only handle the smallest dose possible. Dosage makes a big difference in regards to side effects.
