Hi Jennifer, My name is Candace. I am 23 and had my first seizure at the age 20, right out of the blue. No past history of it. They don't know why or what is causing them. Very frustrating! I have had two Grand Mal Seizures very violent and scary. My doctor put me on dilantin after my second one and I have had only a mild one since, due to me not taking my medication. When I take if faithfully I was seizure free. I have notice some excessive gum growth but not hair. My gums are fine as long as I brush thoroughly twice a day and I use peroxide diluted with water for mouthwash. Hope this helps. Good luck!
Hi Jennyo, Yes that is one of the side effects, actually from what I have read it is one of the most common. It feels more like an inflamation (only sometimes). My dentist told me as long as a floss and keep my mouth really clean it shouldn't be a problem. How is the Dilantin working for you?
only 100 times!!!!!! lol
well I can live with that!
what's really bad is when you forget about that black hair for a few wks and all of a sudden one day you happen to catch a glimpse of it - and shock goes thru you - how long has THAT been there - how many people have seen that horrid long black hair - how could I have NOT seen it????
and then you immediately, without pause, pluck the nasty little bugger out!
(you gotta keep laughing - you know - it's the best medicine!!! besides our great physician, that is)
so so true. we have to be able to laugh at ourselves!!!
i made some crazy mistake at work the other day, and my boss was asking something about it, i look him in the eye, and say " do you know how much medication i'm on?" in a laughing type of way - it totally broke the ice. and he ended up admitting that he makes those kind of mistakes and he's not on anything. (even though we don't always like talking about it with people who's not going thru the same thing - once in a while it's ok to remind them...)
talking about laughing... we went to see "the shaggy dog" tonight. and i laughed so hard - laughing really does make you feel better!!!
