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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
