Can you over does on vitamin D3 or B vitamins?

Yes vit D3 no B vits

Vitamin
Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin. It is theoretically possible to reach a toxic level which is greater than 100 . I have never seen this in my medical practice however. B vitamins are water soluble and any excess is excreted through the urine. Folic Acid in its natural form--folinic acid is okay. Excess synthetic folate has been linked to cancer.

Dr. Jason Burke answered:

can I take vitamin D3 by itself without taking calcium? I am 72 years old. I don't take any other vitamins.

Depends on diet

Calcium
If you eat a good diet with foods that contain calcium, you may not need as much calcium. i would go through your average weekly diet with a nutritionist or doctor and see what they think. You may also want to consider a bone scan to look at your overall bone health.

I've been taking OTC vitamin D3 supplement for Vit. D deficiency & I've been feeling really dizzy. Could if be bc of bad vitamins?

No

Dizziness
OTC Vitamin D3 is fine and won't cause you any symptoms or side effects. A dose of 2000 units/day is generally best for most people. It will take up to 3 mos for your levels to normalize.

Weight loss,weak, GI

Open-uri20130409-25353-1ewt11b
The symptoms of too much Vit D are nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, constipation (possibly alternating with diarrhea), weakness, weight loss, tingling sensations in the mouth, confusion & heart rhythm abnormalities. Vitamin D is quite safe and toxicity is rare; one must take at least 40,000 iu/day for months & have a blood level >200 to become toxic. See http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/?o=1036

How can deficiency to vitamin D3 cause depression?

Not really known yet

Depression_in_pregnancy
Depression is a complex problem & no one really knows the cause of any type of depression! Many people get depressed in winter; it was thought to be due to lack of light but may be due to low Vit D- giving D works better than light therapy! There are Vit. D receptors in the brain & it may help regulate the levels of serotonin. See http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/health-conditions/depression/

Dr. David Leonardi answered:

When deficient in D does taking Vitamin D3 cause Calcium Blood levels to rise or lower? I have read conflicting articles on this.

Vit D and calcium

Vitamin D enhances absorption of calcium from intestine. Calcium then goes to bone where it belongs. Blood calcium level will be regulated by your parathyroid gland and other metabolic factors. Supplementing vitamin D to keep your level of 25-hydroxy vitamin D between 50 and 70 has been shown to possibly prevent disease: cancer, diabetes, depression and dementia. Data R mixed. More studies needed.
