Vitamin D level: Knowing your vitamin d level would be helpful. If you are deficient (and depending how deficient), you will need supplementation so that you can get your level back to normal. If your vitamin d level is normal, then you may want a maintenance dose. D3 is cholecalciferol, a standard form that is taken orally. D2 is ergocalciferol, if taken is in a large 50k international unit (iu) dose once weekly.
