Treatment with several antiepileptic drugs (AED) is associated with lower serum concentrations of folate or vitamin B12. This prospective monocenter study analyzed vitamin B6 blood levels in 400 serial patients with epilepsy, AED-treated (n=385), untreated (n=15) and healthy controls (n=233). The mean plasma vitamin B6 levels of the AED-treated (12.1±10.1; p=0.093) and the untreated patients (15.6±12.4; p=0.664) were not significantly different from the controls (13.9±15.2). These observations do not support the hypothesis that vitamin B6 blood levels are influenced by AED treatment.
