In Reply to: B-6 and epilepsy posted by Carolyn on October 19, 1999 at 23:10:58:

: I have a 6 month old niece who has gran mal seizures.
: The neurologists have talked about using B-6 vitamins
: Does anyone know why and what B-6 is used for? Thanks.

I have a 17 mth old daughter whose had several seizures around 6 mths old. She took B-6 for several months in addition to anti-convulsants. Apparently B-6 is very important in brain activity - the neurologist that I deal with said that some childern are low in B-6 and cannot process it properly from food or breast milk or formula and megadoses of the vitamin may actually prevent or stop the seizures.

Hope this helps a litte - its not very scientific.
