Dilantin Capsules 100mg
Dilantin Capsules 100mg is a leading product for making seizures from epilepsy more manageable. Dilantin helps control two common forms of epilepsy, including complex partial seizures (psychomotor, temporal lobe) and generalised tonic-clonic (grand mal) seizures. Dilantin can also treat certain cardiac arrhythmias (rapid or irregular heartbeat) cases.
Epilepsy is caused by an imbalance of neurotransmitters (chemicals that allow nerve cells to communicate). This leads to bursts of unusual electrical activity in the brain, which then sends nerve signals to the central nervous system causing seizures. Dilantin works by reducing electrical activity in the brain. This results in less frequent and less severe seizures.
