Also known as Euthasol, Pentran, Dilantin, Epanutin, Di-Phen, Epanutin Ready Mixed Parenteral, Phenytek, and Epanutin Infatab


Phenytoin sodium (/fəˈnɪtoʊɨn/) is a commonly used antiepileptic. Phenytoin acts to suppress the abnormal brain activity seen in seizure by reducing electrical conductance among brain cells by stabilizing the inactive state of voltage-gated sodium channels. Aside from seizures, it is an option in the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia in the event that carbamazepine or other first-line treatment seems inappropriate.
