I have read a lot of threads and I am interested to find out about deficiency in vitamin B12. I am light headed a lot and dizzy sometimes. I was diagnosed with "Focal Seizure". Another doctor told me that he could not give me a diagnostic. How can I find out if I have a deficiency in vitamin b12? how much vitamin b12 should I take a day? I am already on Keppra 500mg. I need help. Thanks

  • You can have a physical by your primary physician and he/she can tell if you're deficient in vitamins, including B12. NOTE: Keppra (anti seizure med) depletes you of vitamins, so it's VERY important to take a multi vitamin as well as try to eat healthy and get as many vitamins from food as well. I too am on Keppra (500 mg.) and if you're having the crazy mood swings try B6 as well. With the Keppra I take a B-100 (complex) vitamin to ensure I get all my B's because I know Keppra does wreak havoc on the body. I take a multi with my morning med, B-100 and Omega 3 (fish oil) afternoon, and folic acid with my night does. Hope this helps.
