Frequently asked questions about Phenytoin

Q. For how long does Kiptoin stay in your system?
On an average, Kiptoin may stay in your system for 5-6 days. This duration varies from person to person. In some cases, it may stay for about 9-10 days.
Q. What happens if I stop taking Kiptoin?
Suddenly stopping Kiptoin may cause non-stop seizures (called status epilepticus), which can endanger life. Do not stop taking the medicine without consulting your doctor. If required, your doctor will slowly reduce the dose before stopping it completely.
Q. What are the symptoms that occur if I take more than the recommended dose of Kiptoin? Can I die from Kiptoin overdose?
Overdose of Kiptoin may cause jerky movements of the eyes (nystagmus), unclear speech, loss of balance, tremor, muscle stiffness or weakness, nausea, vomiting, lightheadedness, fainting, blurred vision, slow and shallow breathing and even coma. Kiptoin overdose can cause very low blood pressure and respiratory problems. As a result of this, the patient can even die.
Q. Who should avoid taking Kiptoin?
You should not take Kiptoin if you have liver disease, especially if you have a history of developing a liver problem due to Kiptoin. Also, patients taking Delavirdine (a medicine used in the treatment of HIV infection) should not take Kiptoin. Kiptoin may reduce the effectiveness of Delavirdine on HIV and the virus may also become resistant to Delavirdine. It is advised that you inform your doctor if you have any existing heart disorder before you receive Kiptoin.
Q. Can I take Kiptoin with ibuprofen?
Kiptoin can be taken with ibuprofen. No drug-drug interactions have been reported between the two. However, interactions can occur. Please consult your doctor before taking the two medicines together.
Q. What are the effects of Kiptoin on children?
The most common side effects related to Kiptoin in children are jerky movements of the eyes (nystagmus) and overgrowth of the gums. In some children, Kiptoin causes problems with thinking or behavior, mood change, slow or clumsy movements, or a loss of energy. Other side effects from high doses include unsteadiness in the feet and hands, sleepiness, and vomiting. These may be avoidable if the dose is increased slowly. These side effects quickly disappear when the dose is reduced.
Q. Does Kiptoin cause weight gain?
Kiptoin has not been reported to cause weight gain. However, weight loss can occur with longer term use of a higher dose of Kiptoin. Please consult your doctor if you experience weight gain after taking Kiptoin.
Q. Does Kiptoin make you sleepy?
Kiptoin can make you feel sleepy (sedation, somnolence, and drowsiness). Please consult your doctor if you feel very sleepy after taking Kiptoin, especially during the first few weeks of treatment or following a dose increase. Talk to your doctor as you may be advised not to drive or use machines until it is established that your ability to perform such activities is not affected.
Q. Does Kiptoin affect birth control?
Kiptoin does affect birth control. Kiptoin can decrease the effect of oral contraceptives (birth control pills) which can make the contraceptive (birth control) effect unreliable. Please talk to your doctor if you are asked to take the two medicines together as you may need to use extra protection for birth control.
