Because fosphenytoin is water soluble and has a more neutral pH compared to phenytoin, it is more rapidly and less painfully absorbed when given via the IV or IM route.[5,9] Ethotoin and mephenytoin, second line AEDs in this class, are rapidly absorbed through the gastrointestinal (GI) system.

For instance, CYP2A6 is responsible for the main metabolism of nicotine,[22] and CYP2C19 is responsible for mephenytoin metabolism.[23] The cytochrome CYP2D6 deserves some special considerations.
