Vitamin D Deficiency and Keppra
Can this seizure medicine affect bone health? Some seizure medicines can cause thinning of the bones. While
levetiracetam is not known to cause bone problems, all people taking seizure medicine should take calcium and vitamin D
supplements each day.
I wondered about this when I go into a nice sunny day and it feels so good and my mood is instantly lifted! Good topic, I am into the hospital soon, so I shall seek advice from them, i am tellling on my neurologist!!!!
I have oestroposis...but it is related to having hysterecomy at age 27. But I know there are several people on her that have developed oestro after having taking seizure meds
How much vitamins to take then?
OMG scary! I really have to get healthier in terms of supplements, drinking milk, and getting active. Hard though and easier to be
So is recommended dosage enough for supplements (as listed on the bottle). I take Melaleuca now and they are super-vitamins but i know i don't absorb 1/2 of whats in them because my pee is bright and florescent! Sorry TMI. At the same time, wouldnt our bodies need more if we are getting stripped down of vitamins due to medication?
I don't believe there is a set requirement that is universal. The amount on the bottles is only a guideline. I know my daughter and I take over twice the RDA of magnesium per day. I take 5000IU of Vit D, and I have her on 2000IU.
I have a list of her vitamins on Rebecca's story in my signature.
However here is a current list of what she takes:
Vit B Complex
Rebecca gets calcium from food (though not from cow dairy)
Reducing flour products. Limiting potato items until blood sugar is stabilized, and substituting mostly with brown rice (though not daily). Quinoa is a good substitute.
Absolutely NO High Fructose Corn Syrup, or MSG related ingredients (read labels and learn what these are... maltodextrin, broth, flavoring, hydrolized soy protein, etc)
By locally grown organic whenever possible, especially eggs.
