Question I sure could use some advice


I'm epileptic, and have been for 37yrs. now. I have taken many diff. meds over the years. So I have experienced many diff. side effects, but I've heard that there's a certain type of vitamin that's supposed to help level out the side effects. Is this a true possibility, and if any of you have heard of this same thing, and know it's a true, and known fact. which vitamin is it? I would really appreciate some feedback, by the way I've already asked all my docs these questions. And not one of them has been able to give me any answers in this department. Thank you!

Re: I sure could use some advice

Unfortunately medical practitioners are not very knowledgable about vitamin and minerals and how they have an impact in diseases.

You actually need a research scientist or be able to read scientific papers yourself. Even then most of the research is done on cell cultures or rodents/fish who don't metabolise vitamins and minerals the way humans do.

I have seen lots of vitamins that are supposely linked to epilepsy.

I would suggest you first check whether you are deficient in the standard vitamins and minerals that all medical practitioners can test you for such as iron, vitamin B12, vitamin B6, vitamin D, calcium and confirm you are not at the low part of the range for these.

If you are then do some research to confirm whether raising your levels will not adversely impact your epilepsy then raise your levels making sure you have blood tests when appropriate to check they aren't too high.
