Who should not take Celontin?

If you are allergic to methsuximide (the active drug in Celontin) or if you've been allergic to other anti-seizure drugs, you should not take Celontin. Because Celontin may affect blood count and other tissues in the body, people with certain blood diseases, liver or kidney problems, or lupus should talk to their doctors before taking Celontin. Celontin may also interact with other medications, so people taking barbiturates, hydantoins, and other seizure medications should not take Celontin without first talking with their doctors.
