Four brands of phenytoin were studied in 60 newly diagnosed epileptic patients randomly and equally placed in 4 groups. Serum phenytoin levels were estimated by EMIT and spectrophotometric methods both of which gave close values with good correlation (r = 0.985). Average serum levels and the incidence of remission achieved with the 4 brands varied within statistical scatter; thus these 4 brands manifested equivalent therapeutic efficacy. In 22 patients serum level was less than 5 micrograms/ml… CONTINUE READING
