Are there any risks in taking Celontin?

Celontin (methsuximide) may worsen lupus, liver or kidney disease, and certain blood diseases, and is linked to depression and suicidal thoughts or behavior. Celontin also interacts with other medications, including anticonvulsant drugs and barbiturates, and it’s important that your doctor knows all prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medications you take.

Celontin may also cause dizziness or drowsiness, so you should avoid driving or operating machinery after taking this medication until you know how your body reacts to it.
