magnesium levels and epilepsy?

Hi
My son’s seizure disorder is minimally responsive to medication. He currently is on Banzel and has a VNS. Has anyone used magnesium as a supplement to medication to help control seizures? We have tried modified Atkins. Are there any other wholistic strategies/supplements that you all have found to be effective in treating a intractable seizure disorder?

Hello, @lmcquade, and welcome to Connect.

Since you are inquiring about using magnesium as a supplement to help control seizures, I merged your post with this discussion, "Magnesium levels and epilepsy?" so you could read past posts on this topic and talk with members in this discussion like @ks835 @dawn_giacabazi @jktaheri @robertjr and others. @jakedduck1 also may have some thoughts for you.

You also mentioned that you had tried modified Atkins in looking to try some holistic strategies/supplements that may be effective in treating a intractable seizure disorder. How did this diet work for your son?
