Vitamin D?

Has anyone tried Vitamin D for their seizures, or anything? My chiropractor told me to take it.  I was pretty skeptical since it seems almost every vitamin can be related to epilepsy, but I do feel better overall, although I have no way of knowing if it's done anything for seizure control since that's very unpredictable with me.

Re: Vitamin D?

My neurologist told me to take vitamin D. She did not tell my why I need to. She also told me to take magnesium. I don't think this is because of any blood work, I don't think I am deficiant in any of it.

Well, some drugs are known to cause a deficiency, she could know you are taking one that does. Interesting neurologist, most don't tell you take viamins.

Some seizure meds can deplete vitamin D.  There also just seems to be a problem with many people not getting/having enough.  My level was tested, and I had almost none in my blood.  Now I take 4,000 units a day. I am not recommending this to anyone.  It takes a long time for a level to rise after it has been depleted.  This is something to discuss with your doctor.

This is not to stop seizures, and I don't know anything about that.  D is necessary for good immune function, as well as many other things.
