Eptoin 100 mg is a prescription medicine effective in treating certain types of seizures called tonic-clonic and psychomotor seizures. The medicine has the active ingredient phenytoin, which is an anticonvulsant licensed for the management of seizures. It is also clinically approved to treat seizures that happen during or after brain surgery. The anticonvulsant drug works by controlling certain chemicals which send signals to nerves so that seizures do not occur. It may be used alone, or in combination with other medicines, to treat your condition.
Take Eptoin 100 mg as per your doctor’s recommendations. Your doctor will tell you how much medicine to take every day. The dosage of Phenytoin usually depends on your age, your condition, as well as severity of your condition. Your doctor will always recommend a lower dose of the Phenytoin and slowly increases the dose to the lowest amount required to manage convulsions. Make sure you follow each step given on your prescription. Follow the directions carefully as they may differ from the information given in the information guide. If you do not understand the instructions, ask your doctor for help. The medicine is available in the form of tablet that you need to take with a glass of water during or immediately after a meal. This helps to prevent stomach disturbances. Use it only under a doctor’s supervision. Continue taking this antiseizure medicine for as long as your doctor tells you to. The medicine helps to control the condition but does not cure it. Therefore, you must take the medicine every day even if you feel well. Do not discontinue treatment without your doctor’s consent.
