I was in the hospital for 9 day with status, interupted with valium only to continue to return. Dr decided to try fosphenytoin, it required hospital admin approval due to the cost. Status seizures stopped immediately and I went home two days later. For me this is a miracle drug!

I am currently enrolled in a methadone program and this drug, phenytoin, (dilantin) metabolizes(burns off) the methadone sooner than normal. I'm experiencing the unmistakable feelings of whithdrawal now where before there had been none. I dose at the clinic when the doors open at 6 am. By that evening, 8:00pm or so, I feel the "jones" or withdrawal start. Most common, irritablility, aggitation, cold sweats, and anxiety for my next dose are what I've been experiencing these past few days. It is uncomfortable and annoying to say the least but I continue to take it to satisfy my girlfriend. She is convinced that I'll have another episode(siezeure) if I stop taking the dilantin. I mean, it concernes me also, but the feelings of early withdrawal do suck. I'm currently looking into antother medication(Zonisamide)that claimes to not affect the methadone level. We will see.
