Vitamin D has a central role in the nervous system. Epilepsy patients generally exhibit low level of vitamin D and co-morbidities that are also related to vitamin D. Most antiepileptic drugs have an effect to lower serum level of vitamin D while vitamin D supplementation has been shown to decrease seizures. We recommend routine screening of epilepsy patients on antiepileptic drugs and supplement vitamin D if needed.
