Vitamin Supplements along with AED`s
I`ve been reading lately that taking Vitamin B supplements can sometimes effect the way the body absorbs the AED meds used to control seizures. I`m wondering if this is true and if so is it just the B vitamins or are there others that you might want to avoid.
There is no evidence that B vitamins or any other vitamins affect absorption of antiepileptic drugs.
