Phenytoin: Slow start, fast finish

Phenytoin is absorbed slowly after oral and IM administration. It’s distributed rapidly to all tissues and is highly (90%) protein bound. Phenytoin is metabolized in the liver. Inactive metabolites are excreted in bile and then reabsorbed from the GI tract. Eventually, however, they’re excreted in urine.
