I have epilepsy due to right occipital lobe tumour, I am also vegetarian, should I be taking any vitamins, especially vitamin d?

Some epilepsy medicines might result in the need for a vitamin D supplement to be taken, but this isn’t true of all epilepsy medicines. Taking extra vitamins when you don't need them can be dangerous. So, your doctor would be the best person to ask whether you might need any extra vitamins or minerals . They would take into account your diet and any medicines you are taking.
