Opening: My name is Andrea and I am the pharmacist who RE -filled your prescription for Dilantin prescribed by Dr._______ May I have five minutes of your time to discuss your medication with you, that way you will receive the best results from it? Just to make sure, what allergies do you have that I should be aware of? And what are the other medications are you taking? Here is an information fact sheet about Dilantin that I will provide to you after the counseling session Prime Questions: 1. What do you take the medication for? Phenytoin is used for the management and prevention of certain types of seizures. It works on the brain to reduce the number and severity of seizures. 2. How do you take it? Take Dilantin exactly as it was prescribed for you because the dosage is individualized to provide the maximal benefits. It is really important that you stick with the regimen the doctor asked you to go on because not doing so can lead to harmful effects. Do you have any problems with the treatment regimen?
