More info please: Exactly how did you overdose on vit. E? Taking a large amount at once generally causes little harm except diarrhea & cramps for a few hours, as the body can't absorb much at once. Taking 1500 iu or more for weeks can be harmful by thinning the blood too much, but stopping it and taking vit. K will take care of that.
