first of all you have to understand that the drug citicholine and phenytoin have two different indications for use . Citicholine is for brain protection and phenytoin is for prevention of fits (epilepsy) that can occur in head injury. If you have any discomfort with phenytoin youu have to check the blood levels of phenytoin and consult a neurosurgeon. And if the blood levels are in acceptable limits and still you have this trouble , there is always aother alternative drugs . This medication has to be used at least for 6 months to 1yr as the risk of epilepsy is there fro this time period and may be ensured with an EEG study. So you have to consult a neurosurgeon for this
