Phenytoin (Dilantin): Anticonvulsant Drug for Tonic-clonic or Partial Seizures in Epilepsy Patients
Source: https://www.medindia.net/ For more information, Please visit: https://www.medindia.net/doctors/drug_information/phenytoin.htm Phenytoin belongs to a class of medications called anticonvulsants or anti-epileptic drugs. Popular brands of phenytoin are Dilantin, Epsolin, Epanutin, and Eptoin. It works by reducing the abnormal electrical activity or decreasing the impulses in the brain which is responsible for causing seizures. Phenytoin is prescribed for treating or preventing episodes of generalised tonic-clonic seizures or grand mal epilepsy, complex partial seizures, and seizures occurring during or after brain surgery. Avoid alcohol consumption during phenytoin treatment. Maintain good oral hygiene to minimize the risk of gum problems. Take additional contraceptive measures to avoid pregnancy. Please help us translate this video in your language to make it more universal and useful to your language community. We present useful and essential information on the drug phenytoin that everyone should know when taking this drug. Use Medindia drug information to check drug to drug interactions if you are taking more than one drug. Share your comments if you are experiencing any unusual side effects.

keppra side effects - dealing with the side effects of keppra
Check out my blog for a FREE ketogenic cookbook - https://getfitandhealthyathome.com/free-keto-cookbook-bacon-and-butter/ The ketogenic diet will help you prevent seizures naturally. I was on keppra for six years. The side effects of keppra vary with individuals. Some people don't experience keppra side effects. I had minimal side effects on keppra, however I didn't enjoy being medicated. I wanted to be seizure free and medication free. Some people do experience personality changes and have keppra rage. Other people are like me and simply lethargic. Keppra is a great medication for people who experience juvenile myoclonic epilepsy like myself. However, I didn't like the side effects of keppra and didn't want to live with taking medication every single day and not really improving my health, but just keeping myself from having seizures. After a lot of trials and many frustrations from the side effects of keppra, I made the decision not to deal with the keppra side effects anymore and started to slowly lower my medication dose while I implemented some holistic techniques to calm my seizures. I use a breathing technique, exercise using a mini-trampoline to circulate the lymphatic system, eat healthy and detoxify my body from time to time to counter the effects of keppra. It has been a great journey off medication and I'm feeling better than ever. The great thing is that I'm not having seizures and I can see an improvement in my quality of life. 0:01 keppra side effects video begins 0:10 My experience with keppra side effects 2:00 side effects of keppra on cognition 3:00 how I came off Keppra and stay seizure free - check out my book on Amazon Here's the link again to check out my blog and my book - http://melindacurle.com/2013/09/28/addressing-the-causes-of-seizures-naturally/

What Is Dilantin? | Epilepsy
Watch more Epilepsy & Seizure Disorders videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/502053-What-Is-Dilantin-Epilepsy Dilantin is one of our oldest anti seizure medications that has been around. It’s indicated for patients who have seizures that start in one area of the brain and spread, so partial complex seizures. The problem with Dilantin is that, it works great for a rescue medication and it’s used a lot in cases of status epilepticus. It’s used post neurosurgery or epilepsy surgery but it has some bad long term side effects so it’s not used as much as it once was. It can cause gum hyperplasia and sort of thickening and coarsening of the facial features. There are people that are still on it who have been on it for years, because it’s the only thing that works but it’s not usually a first choice. It has a big issue with bone health, so patients who are on Dilantin, it could affect their bones, cause wasting of the bones, can cause thinning of the hair as well. Again, it’s an old school medication, not one of our first choices, but as Patty said, it’s very good in the operating room, emergency room, but you can’t give it too quickly in the IV, you have to give it slowly because it can cause cardiac problems. So, it’s one of the medications that they’re sort of phasing out of using in acute care, but clearly many patients are still on it, so it’s important to talk to your doctor, see if you should stay on that medication, are there other options, and to monitor the side effects closely.

Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Epilepsy is a group of neurological diseases characterized by recurrent seizures. Seizures happen as a result of a sudden surge in the brain’s electrical activities. Depending on which part of the brain is affected, a seizure may manifest as loss of awareness, unusual behaviors or sensations, uncontrollable movements or loss of consciousness. The brain is a complex network of billions of neurons. Neurons can be excitatory or inhibitory. Excitatory neurons stimulate others to fire action potentials and transmit electrical messages, while inhibitory neurons SUPPRESS this process, preventing EXCESSIVE firing. A balance between excitation and inhibition is essential for normal brain functions. In epilepsy, there is an UP-regulation of excitation and/or DOWN-regulation of inhibition, causing lots of neurons to fire SYNCHRONOUSLY at the same time. If this abnormal electrical surge happens within a limited area of the brain, it causes PARTIAL or FOCAL seizures. If the entire brain is involved, GENERALIZED seizures will result. Partial seizures subdivide further to: - Simple partial: - Complex partial Generalized seizures subdivide further to: - Absence seizures: - Tonic seizures - Atonic seizures, drop attacks - Clonic seizures - Myoclonic seizures - The most common and also most dramatic are tonic-clonic seizures, also known as convulsive seizures, which are combinations of muscle stiffening and jerking. This type is what most people relate to when they think of a seizure. It also involves sudden loss of consciousness and sometimes loss of bladder control. A tonic-clonic seizure that lasts longer than 5min requires immediate medical treatment. Epilepsy may develop as a result of a brain injury, tumor, stroke, previous infection or a birth defect. Generalized seizures that start in childhood are likely to involve genetic factors. Epilepsy due to a single gene mutation is rare. More often, an interaction of multiple genes and environmental factors is responsible. Hundreds genes have been implicated. Examples include genes encoding for GABA receptors – major components of the inhibitory circuit, and ion channels. Many genetic disorders that cause brain abnormalities or metabolic conditions have epilepsy as a primary symptom. The cause of epilepsy is unknown in about half of cases. Diagnosis is based on observation of symptoms, medical history, and an electroencephalogram, or EEG, to look for abnormal brain waves. An EEG may also help in differentiating between partial and generalized seizures. Genetic testing maybe helpful when genetic factors are suspected. There is no cure for epilepsy but various treatments are available to control seizures. Medication successfully controls seizures for about 70% of cases. Many anti-epileptic drugs are available which target sodium channels, GABA receptors, and other components involved in neuronal transmission. Different medicines help with different types of seizures. Patients may need to try several drugs to find the most suitable. Dietary therapy: ketogenic diet has been shown to reduce or prevent seizures in many children whose seizures could not be controlled with medication. Ketogenic diet is a special high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet that must be prescribed and followed strictly. With this diet, the body uses fat as the major source of energy instead of carbohydrates. The reason why this helps control epilepsy is unclear. Nerve stimulation therapies such as vagus nerve stimulation in which a device placed under the skin is programmed to stimulate the vagus nerve at a certain rate. The device acts as a pacemaker for the brain. The underlying mechanism is poorly understood but it has been shown to reduce seizures significantly. Finally, a surgery may be performed to remove part of the brain that causes seizure. This is usually done when tests show that seizures are originated from a small area that does not have any vital function.

Alternative Treatment to Medication for Children who Experience Seizures
Seizures can be terrifying. When seizures occur with a child, the effect on those around is chilling. The sheer feeling of helplessness is hard to describe. Currently, there are multiple medications available for the management of epilepsy or seizures, mainly in the form of anticonvulsant drugs. Common medications include Dilantin, Phenobarbital, Tegretol, Mysoline, Depakene, Topomax and more. The long term effect of these medications and chemicals on the body can have a deteriorating effect such as blurry or double vision, unsteadiness, liver problems, skin rashes, low blood cell counts, swelling of the gums, hair loss or weight gain. What if there was a better, safer way? The problem with many medications, is that they often do not address the underlying cause of seizures. As you have seen and heard Paula McTaggert testify, the apparent cause of her son's seizures was a spinal misalignment at the very top of the neck. X-Rays in fact not only demonstrated misalignment, but they also demonstrated laxity of the ligaments holding the first vertebrae (called the Atlas) in place. In David's case, medications could never cure his seizures, because the problem was not chemical. David's problem was bio-neuro-mechanical. Chiropractors commonly call this condition a Subluxation. This Subluxation not only caused David's seizures, but it also caused his headaches and blurred vision. In an article published in 2001 by the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, 17 children were given chiropractic treatment when they were unable to receive relief of their symptoms with any form of seizure medication. Roughly 88% of the patients studied experienced decreased frequency as well as the magnitude of their seizures. Chiropractic care is very natural and has few side effects. This makes it a virtually risk-free option to consider for a seizure patient. Chiropractic care is covered under a variety of different health insurance plans. Chiropractic works with the nervous system to improve function and remove any interference from nerve fibers which can cause seizure activity. There are lots of great chiropractors all over the world. If you are curious about how to choose a chiropractor to help a friend or a family member with their seizures, we recommend the following guidelines: 1. Find a chiropractor who actually adjusts the spine (some are more focused on other methods). 2. Look for a chiropractor who sees families. 3. X-Rays are important, and most chiropractors take them in their office. Flexion and extension as well as lateral flexion X-Rays might show ligament laxity. 4. Do not judge a chiropractor by their acceptance of your health insurance. Experience makes a difference. 5. Feel free to ask us. We can try to help you find a good chiropractor in your area.

Epilepsy is much more than seizures.
This video highlights just some of the physical consequences, social challenges and profound emotional experiences of people affected by epilepsy. Some of the people we work with speak candidly about the wider effects that epilepsy has had on their life. Epilepsy can provoke strong emotions including depression and suicidal thoughts, and feelings of bereavement can result from the thought that epilepsy has robbed you of the person you were and completely changed your plans for the future. We hear of two experiences, one in public with colleagues in the workplace and one with a friend in a social setting, where knowledge about epilepsy would have made a difference. We also hear how individuals affected by epilepsy can sustain severe injuries including burns, but injuries commonly sustained during seizures can range from cuts and bruises to serious head injuries. In themselves the physical impacts of epilepsy can be life changing. Please be aware that the DVD footage contains graphic images of injuries resulting from seizures. If you are affected by any of tonight's stories and want to talk in confidence about your own experiences, call our Freephone helpline on 0808 800 2200.

Medical Surgical Neurological System: Seizure Disorders
Hello Everyone, here is a Neurological Disorder lecture on Seizures made easy to understand to help aide in your study sessions. I have gathered all of the important information from my Med- Surg Book (Brunners and Suddarth 12th edition) that will prepare you for your nursing test whether it is for school or NCLEX. Part 2 of this lecture will be located under the Pharmacology section due to the fact that it will cover more about the treatment of various medications. Here are some Extra information that may help & guide you to all that you want to know about seizures: Seizure Surgical Management Surgery is indicated for patients whose epilepsy results from intracranial tumors, abscesses, cysts, or vascular anomalies. Some patients have intractable seizure disorders that do not respond to medication. A focal atrophic process may occur secondary to trauma, inflammation, stroke, or anoxia. If the seizures originate in a reasonably well-circumscribed area of the brain that can be excised without producing significant neurologic deficits, the removal of the area generating the seizures may produce long-term control and improvement (AANN, 2007). When seizures are refractory to medication in adolescents and adults with partial seizures, a generator may be implanted under the clavicle. The device is connected to the vagus nerve in the cervical area, where it delivers electrical signals to the brain to control and reduce seizure activity (AANN, 2007). An external programming system is used by the physician to change stimulator settings. Patients can turn the stimulator on and off with a magnet (Krapohl, Deutinger & Komurcu, 2007). More research is needed to determine the effects of the various surgical approaches on complication rates, quality of life, anxiety, and depression, all of which are issues for patients with epilepsy. Epilepsy Epilepsy is a group of syndromes characterized by unprovoked, recurring seizures (AANN, 2007). Epileptic syndromes are classified by specific patterns of clinical features including age at onset, family history, and seizure type. Types of epilepsies are differentiated by how the seizure activity manifests (see Chart 61-3), the most common syndromes being those with generalized seizures and those with partial-onset seizures (Hickey, 2009). Epilepsy can be primary (idiopathic) or secondary (when the cause is known and the epilepsy is a symptom of another underlying condition, such as a brain tumor). Pathophysiology Messages from the body are carried by the neurons (nerve cells) of the brain by means of discharges of electrochemical energy that sweep along them. These impulses occur in bursts whenever a nerve cell has a task to perform. Sometimes, these cells or groups of cells continue firing after a task is finished. If these uncontrolled, abnormal discharges occur repeatedly, a person is said to have an epileptic syndrome. Epilepsy is not associated with intellectual level. People who have epilepsy without other brain or nervous system disabilities fall within the same intelligence ranges as the overall population. Epilepsy is not synonymous with mental retardation or illness. However, many people who have developmental disabilities because of serious neurologic damage also have epilepsy. CORRECTION: Nursing Care During a Seizure • Provide privacy and protect the patient from curious onlookers. (The patient who has an aura [warning of an impending seizure] may have time to seek a safe, private place.) • Ease the patient to the floor, if possible. • Protect the head with a pad to prevent injury (from striking a hard surface). • Loosen constrictive clothing. • Push aside any furniture that may injure the patient during the seizure. • If the patient is in bed, remove pillows and raise side rails. • If an aura precedes the seizure, insert an oral airway to reduce the possibility of the patient’s biting the tongue or cheek. • Do not attempt to pry open jaws that are clenched in a spasm or to insert anything. Broken teeth and injury to the lips and tongue may result from such an action. • No attempt should be made to restrain the patient during the seizure, because muscular contractions are strong and restraint can produce injury. If Possible, place the patient on one side with head flexed forward, which allows the tongue to fall forward and facilitates drainage of saliva and mucus. If suction is available, use it if necessary to clear secretions. Nursing Care After the Seizure • Keep the patient on one side to prevent aspiration. Make sure the airway is patent. • There is usually a period of confusion after a grand mal seizure. • A short apneic period may occur during or immediately after a generalized seizure. • The patient, on awakening, should be reoriented to the environment. • If the patient becomes agitated after a seizure (postictal), use persuasion and gentle restraint to assist him or her to stay calm.

What Is Topamax? | Epilepsy
Watch more Epilepsy & Seizure Disorders videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/502063-What-Is-Topamax-Epilepsy Topamax or Topiramate is one of the medications used to control epilepsy. Its big side effect is that it can decrease appetite, some people think that it can cause some cognitive dulling or some word finding issues, but it hasn't been that much our experience. You know, nickname they give it is Dopamax, uh, and it's word finding difficulties, you can't find the word or such, so this has been certainly described, and it seems like older people are more sensitive to it than children are. There's a risk of kidney stones, um, a risk of glaucoma and blurry vision, so if you experience some blurry vision with it you need to get checked out and make sure that's okay, and also in some younger children, they don't sweat on it, which can be a problem in the summer. It's also used for migraines, to prevent migraines, so it's pretty commonly used. It also gives some side effects of tingling in your fingers and toes, which is dose related and goes away by itself. It's one of the new medications that we use in children and small children and in infants because it has some neuroprotective qualities, so it prevents seizures as well as stopping the seizures that are currently occurring. So it's important if you're on this medication to describe to the people taking care of you whether you are experiencing some difficulties finding words, if you find confusion, you're losing your car keys all the time, something like that, because that could be a side effect of the medication. That as well as the numbness and tingling and again, it's a good medication to use in neonates and newborn babies to prevent and control their seizures.

seizure lecture for nursing students,fun , easy !!!!!!
1. Classifications of seizures 2. Treatment 3. Nursing considerations Seizures can be focal or generalized. Focal seizures are limited to one cerebral hemisphere and are usually associated with focal abnormalities within the brain. Focal seizures are usually asscociated with focal abnormalities of the brain Within Focal there are 2 types simple and complex. 1. Simple is no loss of consciousness- These can be seizures like the Jacksonian March- the patient experiences stiffening or jerking in one extremity. The seizure may progress to a generalized tonic clonic seizure 2. Complex is loss of consciousness- signs of complex vary but usually include purposeless behavior, picking at clothes, aimless wandering, lip smacking, chewing, untelligible speech Depending on the type of seizure it generally consist of drug therapy and severity of seizure. Prolonged seizures lasting more than 5-15 minutes and/or continuous seizures without intervening periods of consciousness

Lets Hold Grants (Epilepsy)
Meet Grant and his condition Epilepsy! Epilepsy is a disorder in which nerve cell activity in the brain is disturbed, causing seizures. Epilepsy is usually treated by medications and in some cases by surgery, devices, or dietary changes. During a seizure, a person experiences abnormal behavior, symptoms, and sensations, sometimes including loss of consciousness. There are few symptoms between seizures. Symptoms: Muscular: rhythmic muscle contractions or muscle spasms Cognitive: amnesia or mental confusion Sensory: aura or pins and needles Whole body: fainting or fatigue Psychological: depression or fear Also common: seizures, anxiety, headache, sleepiness, staring spells, or temporary paralysis after a seizure Treatment: Carbamazepine (Tegretol), Diazepam (Valium), Topiramate (Topamax), Lamotrigine (Lamictal), Oxcarbazepine (Trileptal), Midazolam by injection, Gabapentin (Neurontin), Levetiracetam by injection or by mouth (Keppra), Clonazepam (Klonopin), Phenobarbital, Primidone (Mysoline), Ethosuximide (Zarontin), Pregabalin (Lyrica), Felbamate (Felbatol), Phenytoin by mouth (Dilantin) or by injection, Valproic acid (Depakene) More Information: More than 200,000 US cases per year Can't be cured, but treatment may help Requires a medical diagnosis Lab tests or imaging often required Chronic: can last for years or be lifelong Epilepsy may occur as a result of a genetic disorder or an acquired brain injury, such as a trauma or stroke. During a seizure, a person experiences abnormal behavior, symptoms, and sensations, sometimes including loss of consciousness. There are few symptoms between seizures.

Treating Seizures
According to a national study involving Henry Ford Hospital, patients recovered faster from a prolonged seizure when their medication was injected directly into the muscle rather than administered intravenously, According to a three-year study that tested whether administering the drug midazolam into the muscle by an auto-injector was more effective at stopping seizures than giving the drug lorazepam intravenously by the time patients were transported to the Emergency Department.

What Is Ativan? | Epilepsy
Watch more Epilepsy & Seizure Disorders videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/502048-What-Is-Ativan-Epilepsy Let's talk about some of the medications that we use in epilepsy. One of the big names as a rescue medication is Ativan. Ativan is in the benzodiazepine family. It's used, again, for rescue medication, given either intramuscularly as an injection or intravenously, IV. Usually used in emergency rooms, or by EMS. So, if someone is having a prolonged seizure, such as status epilepticus. That means a seizure lasting more than 15 minutes, this is a medication that's preferred to be given. If you give it quickly, it will hopefully knock out the seizure, and let the seizure end. But if you give too much of it, that's when we have a problem where it can actually stop the breathing. So, people worry about using too much of it. It may. If the person is seizing for a long time, it may have to be given more than once. And then you need to monitor respirations. But again, it's usually given in an emergency room or an ambulance setting. So, Ativan is a rescue medication used to break seizures or clusters of seizures, given IV or IM, intramuscularly. Uh, and can depress respirations if too much of it's given.
