Wow - I am sorry to hear they missed the dilantin interaction. Good for you for being thorough. It is a HUGE problem that doctors do not look more carefully for drug interactions.

Dilantin can interact with A LOT of things, and chemo too. Ask his neurologist if you can change to Keppra. It is the seizure drug of choice for all people with cancer/on chemo. It doesn't interact with any medicines, has minimal side effects, and you don't have to check any drug levels in the blood.
