I was diagnosed with Epilepsy/Seizure disorder (SD) at age 15 and then PD at age 57 (now 68). I've been on Dilantin (phenytoin) since dx of SD. Just this week I found a medical website describing SD and the use of Rx phenyton as treatment. Most interesting are the potential side effects of slow/slurred speech, uncontrollable shaking / tremors, balance problems, difficulty understanding.. THIS SOUNDS LIKE PD SYMPTOMS.!
So do I have PD or the adverse side effects of phenytoin? What, if any, is the relationship of the two? Your insight is appreciated.
