You're not alone.
I have the exact same problem with unwanted hair growth. It's so embarrasing that I won't even take off my shirt in the summer plus my kids think it's gross. I could have wrote the same post per bete.
I won't even go swimming.
I've been on dilantin since 1979 and also have all the other side affects as well.
- unwanted hair growth
- very poor gait (from the dilantin and pheonobarb)
- short term memory loss
- slurred speech (sounds like I'm drunk)
- erectile dysfunction
- very poor hand/eye co-ordination and dexterity.
- mood swings
I don't have liver probs or overgrowth of the gums
Thanks SO much for sharing with me. It REALLY makes me feel better, knowing I'm not the only one. I too don't take off my shirt in public or go swimming (and we have a pool!). Randy, you and I could be clones regarding the list of side effects.
