Preventive treatment with ergocalciferol and cholecalciferol in epilepsy. A comparative study in 86 patients


, : Preventive treatment with ergocalciferol and cholecalciferol in epilepsy. A comparative study in 86 patients. Nervenarzt 49(3): 174-180

For 6 months 86 adult epileptic outpatients treated for at least 1 year were given daily in oily solution as drops 1300 or 4000 IU ergocalciferol or cholecalciferol. In blood serum 25-hydroxycholecalciferol rose significantly in all 4 random groups, according to dose, but not linearly, and calcium likewise increased in all. The Ca:creatinine ratio in 24-h urine was less with ergocalciferol than with cholecalciferol.
