About Dilantin

Dilantin (generic: phenytoin) is a commonly prescribed medication used to treat epilepsy and seizures. Dilantin was approved by the FDA in 2001. Since then there have been numerous reports of severe side effects affecting the skin. A major side effect is Stevens Johnson Syndrome (SJS), a potentially deadly skin disease which produces burn-like rashes, open sores and skin peeling. SJS is deadly between 5%-15% of the time. The drug has also been linked to Toxic Necrolysis Syndrome (TENS) which is deadly in 30%-40% patients. The side effects to these severe skin diseases include:

  • Flu-like symptoms (fever, sore throat, cough)
  • Red or purple skin rash
  • Hives
  • Blisters on the skin or mucous membranes, especially in the mouth, nose and eyes
  • Facial swelling
  • Tongue swelling
  • Skin pain
  • Skin shedding

Those taking Dilantin may also face cellulitis, sepsis, eye problems which can lead to blindness, internal organ damage and permanent skin damage. These side effects can last a lifetime.

Plaintiffs in class action lawsuits claim Pfizer, and the generic drug makers Mylan Pharmaceuticals and Baxter Healthcare, were aware of the drugs dangers but failed to adequately warn the public about the increased risks of the severe skin diseases.
