You can: for few weeks, especially if you are overweight / obese, but keep the follow up with your doctor. The usual dose for the vit D deficiency is 1500 - 2000 iu / day for adults. Lifestyle changes, diet, exercise and other factors influence our metabolism, so it is more important to concentrate on healthy lifestyle, good luck
