Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You can try for DILANTIN susp. which comes in 100ml. But do not use it before consulting your son's Doctor as the concentration of drug may be different in both syrups. You should tell Doctor of this medicine and ask how much dose to take.

Hello Srinivas;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The medicine syrup Eption contains Phenytoin sodium so if the medicine is not available you can ask for the other brand with the same content Phenytoin sodium and the name of the syrup -DILANTIN suspension.Just ask some doctor or the chemist to check the content of the medicine in each 5ml and if it is equal to Eptoin then you can use it.
