Part Descriptions

LP14732-9   Phenytoin
Phenytoin sodium (marketed as Dilantin ® in the USA and as Epanutin ® in the UK, by Parke-Davis, now part of Pfizer) is a commonly used antiepileptic. It was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 1953 for use in seizures. It dampens the unwanted, runaway brain activity seen in seizure by reducing electrical conductance among brain cells.

LP14732-9   Phenytoin
An anticonvulsant that is used to treat a wide variety of seizure disorders. It is also an anti-arrhythmic and a muscle relaxant. The mechanism of therapeutic action is not clear, although several cellular actions have been described including effects on ion channels, active transport, and general membrane stabilization. The mechanism of its muscle relaxant effect appears to involve a reduction in the sensitivity of muscle spindles to stretch. Phenytoin has been proposed for several other therapeutic uses, but its use has been limited by its side effects and interactions with other drugs.
