Had convulsions as a child , put on dilantin, then stopped since no epilepsy. Could it have damaged me?

2 doctors agree
In brief: Unlikely
Not too infrequently, seizure medicine (antiepileptics) can be tapered off in children if they have not experienced seizure for two years and brain wave test (eeg) became normalized.
Any damage? Unlikely except for common side effects of dilatin.
