Abstract

The influence of enteral feeding (with Ensure) on the absorption of phenytoin sodium from capsules was studied. Six healthy and adult volunteers were given a single dose of phenytoin capsules 400 mg po on two occasions. Blood specimens were collected for 48 hours after each dose. In a randomized, crossover fashion, each subject completed the following two phases: (1) phenytoin without enteral feedings, and (2) concomitant enteral feedings before phenytoin and continued at 100 ml/h for ten hours. The areas under the concentration versus time curves from 0-48 hours (AUC0-48) were not significantly different between the two phases (p > 0.5). The percent relative bioavailability of phenytoin with enteral feedings was 101.7 percent. This study suggests that enteral feedings do not affect the serum concentrations of phenytoin after a single dose given in capsule form.
