Cholecalciferol, or vitamin D3, is what is most commonly used for nutritional replacement (ergocalciferol, or vitamin D2, is also used although less preferred than D3). You should take at least 5, 000 units/day and have your 25-hydroxyvitamin D level checked again in 2-3 months. ...Read more

Dr: Dr lin provided excellent input. Your diet is extremely restrictive. There is a rainbow of colors when it comes to vegetables and fruits. Each contain different enzymes. To get a balance, you need to be eating a variety of colors. It is not surprising that your vitamin d levels are low with your limited food intake. Since you do not appear to take in red meat, you may also have a low carnitine level. I very much agree with the recommendation of working with a nutritionist. ...Read more
Just started aciphex (rabeprazole) can I take with my medication klonopin inderal remeron vitamin d and fish oil?
No worries w/Aciphex: There appear to be some interactions between your current meds: the Inderal may reduce the fish oil effect, and the Klonopin and Remeron combination may cause increased CNS depression (more sedation).

What are well tolerated forms of vitamin d and what are some tips on how to best take it? I get bodyaches with calciferol.
Smaller doses, D3: Vitamin d, in usual doses, should not cause much by way of muscle pain unless you have an underlying metabolic disease. Sometimes it is better tolerated when taken daily and somewhat smaller doses, rather than once a week in 50, 000 units. Naturally derived forms of vitamin d3 can also cause less distress. ...Read more
