Hello Ramadhanti! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Epilepsy is a disease that can cause seizures in patients. Seizures occur when there is a disruption in electrical activity in the brain. The type of seizure that occurs can be very dependent on areas of the brain that experience epileptic activity. Seizures usually occur for a few seconds to minutes. After a seizure, brain activity will usually return to normal. Phenytoin is one of the antiepileptic drugs of choice for focal epilepsy. Take the medication according to the instructions given by your neurologist. This drug will not cure epilepsy, but can prevent seizures. Not taking this medicine according to the rules makes you vulnerable to having seizures again. One side effect that often appears is drowsiness. This is normal, but if these side effects really bother you, you should come back to see a neurologist who is prescribing the drug. To find out if you really have ataxia and nystagmus, you need to be examined directly by a doctor. Both are signs of disturbance to the body's balance. Your doctor can evaluate this when you come back. Paracetamol is a fever and pain reliever, usually this drug does not cause the side effects you mentioned. Mecobalamin is a vitamin that can have an effect on your brain. Mecobalamin also usually does not cause the side effects you mentioned. Patients who experience epilepsy, especially if it has not been controlled (2 years free of seizures), should not drive or do activities that require high concentration. Avoid alcohol consumption because alcohol can make antiepileptic side effects become more severe.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
