I have been using dilantin for 20 years have been seizure free for 17 years I also use rivotril for about 2 years. My biggest problem is it feels to me as if I see everything around me and cant focus on one point. I can look at one point but it still feels as if I see everything else.When Im in a room and someone next to me or inftont of me twitch a arm scratch their nose I imediatly look in that direction and it feels to me as if the people then think I am watching them. Is there anybody else with these problems?
