Possibly: If you had neuro-cysticercosis (the larvae of tapeworm that settles in the brain) and you were not treated, that can cause damage to the brain. It depends on how severe the infestation was, whether you were treated or not and what part of the brain is affected. This condition can also cause a form of epilepsy that can also affect memory. A ct scan of the brain can help answer these questions.

Slowly: Dilantin is a long acting drug, meaning that it takes time for levels to stabilize. How to do it depends on whether you are really free of seizures, the current dose and the chances of future seizures. A level of 3.1 may be therapeutic. Low levels depend on the dose, the Dilantin formulation and the ability of your body to absorb the drug.
