Will vitamin d supplement cause constipation?

Yes

Vitamins_and_supplements
Vitamin D has been reported to cause constipation. In your case, there is no blood test to determine if constipation is caused by vitamin D. It would be reasonable to stop the vitamin D for 1-2 weeks to see if the constipation resolves. If it does, you are likely confirming this as a side effect.

Could my drug regimen of Depakote, Omeprazole, Percocet, calcium, and vitamin D be causing constipation?

Yes

Constipation
Constipation is a known side effect of both percocet and omeprazole. If you must have these medicines, increase both your water and fiber intake, and consider adding probiotics to your diet to offset the effects.

What could be causing my breast fed 6 month old to be constipated? Could it be the vitamin D drops I've been giving him or something else?

Doubt the drops a pb

Vitamins_and_supplements
Changes in stooling are often related to changes in diet.Rice cereal & bananas are common constipating agents while juices often loosen stool. Constipation is often a misapplied term.If it is soft but not every day I don't consider it constipation. Rabbit pellets or harder I apply the term.

Taking naturemade vitamjn d3 2000 IU per day for 1 month can cause chest spasm? My vitamin d is 8 ng/ml and magnesium 118.

NO

Vitamin_d
Vitamin D does not cause chest pain. Mag. deficiency causes spasm but I don't know the significance of 118 (the labs I use have a normal range of 1.5-2.4). With a D level so low I advise 8000 iu/day for at least 3 months- aim for a level of 50-80. See http://bit.ly/1gNXNk0 It's important to assure you have adequate Vit A & K as well- see http://bit.ly/1d6MkHq See http://bit.ly/1dpAi09 re: mag.
