This probably sounds really stupid but maybe someone can relate, Is it the epilepsy MEDICATION or a different matter:
I am finding that over the years of dilantin and pheonobarb use, my toungue seems to be too large, resulting in slurred speech AND lots of frequent toungue biting as well as the inside of my cheek. I have to chew gum every day because I have halitosis from my other meds that I take for my Colitis and I constantly bite my toungue or inside of my cheek. It even happens when I eat. This has been over the last couple of years and becoming more frequent.
Q Could this be a result of long term use of epilepsy meds?
I have not found any documetation on it but I thought it might have something to do with the slurred speech.
Diagnosed with epilepsy and ulcerative colitis in 1979,
Been on meds ever since.
