Will a vitamin d supplement be an effective treatment for lamictal induced deficiency?

Yes: Lamictal has a whole slew of potential side effects, but wasn't aware that vitamin d deficiency was one of them.
No matter the cause, if you're vitamin d deficient an over the counter 2, 000 units of vitamin d3 daily is a very effective treatment with almost zero potential risk unless you have an elevated calcium level (which should be evaluated by your doc)/.
