Vit D Deficiency and epilepsy
by Donna Webster
I am 36 Years old and have had Epilepsy for 10 yrs + and have try various medication over the years I had brain surgery (right temprolobectomy)last year.
I am now on Lamotrigine 200mg daily, Pregablin 400mg daily and Epinutin 200mg daily. This is a recent dosage change but been on these drugs for at least 8 yrs. the lamotrigine since day 1.
I have just been told that I have Vit D Deficiency with a level of 21 nmol/l and I've been put on Calcichew 2 daily. I also have a family history of Osteoporosis.
Any advice please if I'm still on Epileptic drugs with the possibility of the drugs weakening the bones and a family history of osteoporosis. Will the Calcichew work to fix my vit d deficiency?
