Seizure Meds and low white blood count?
Hi,
I have been on Dilantin (400mg) for the past seven years.  Recently I have been for lack of a better word, feeling out of sorts.  I asked my neurologist to check my dilaintin levels and do some blook work.  He agreed.

The results were that my dilantin levels are at theraputic levels (12).  My WBC is low 2.94 with a normal range of 4.00-11.00.  Also my absolute lymph is low at .67 normal range is 1.00-4.90.  

My neurologist believes that the Dilantin is causing the low wbc.  I do have an appointment set up with him in a week and would like to hear your opinion on the combination of low WBC and low absolute lyph really means.  My doctors has informed me that he would like for me to switch my anti-epileptic medication.

Any advice would be greatly appreiciated!

Thanks.
