My 44 year old husband has had epilepsy since age 13. First he took Phenobarbital and through the years he has been on tegretol, dilantin and now Depakote ER which controls his seizures very well. We found out recently though that he has osteoporosis and fractures. His doctor says this could have been caused by the epilepsy medicaitons. Has anyone else heard of this? He is being treated with Fosamax, Mircalcin and Calcium supplements, but I wanted to find out how common this is. I don't want anyone else to go through the pain he has becuse of this.
