Kidney...stone?: Your question was cut off before you finished what your kidney ailment was. If it is kidney stones, you should be fine taking a small dose of calcitriol (0.5mcg daily) to bring your vitamin D levels back to normal. But I would monitor your blood levels regularly to make sure you are not going too high. If you have decreased kidney function, the dose should be even lower, so consult your doctor. ...Read more

I've been taking cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) for6months. Could taking it cause weird muscle pains&twitching (3months now)? I also take mg since 2month

Unlikely: Assuming your vitamin D levels are in the normal range, it is less likely that this supplementation is causing your muscle pains and twitching. Your twitches may be related to any number of reasons including stress, stimulant overuse (for example, caffeine), overexercise, or nutritional deficiencies.

Is D3 and ‘cholecalciferol’ interchangeable? Or is ‘cholecalciferol’ a specific type of d3? . I want to make sure I am taking the right vitamin because none of the bottles I found said ‘cholecalciferol’... Just d3.

Is D3 and ‘cholecalciferol’ interchangeable? Or is ‘cholecalciferol’ a specific type of d3? . I want to make sure I am taking the right vitamin because none of the bottles I found said ‘cholecalciferol’... Just d3.

Vitamin: Vitamin d3 has 3 recognized forms:
- cholecalciferol - the inactive form of d3
- Calcitriol - the active form of d3
- calcifediol - the form of d3 measured in the blood to assess vitamin d status

cholecalciferol is turned into calcifediol by the liver and then into the active form of vitamin d3 (calcitriol) by the kidney. Cholecalciferol is the form of vitamin d3 found in supplements, so a vitamin which says it has "d3" means just that it has cholecalciferol and should be fine. ...Read more

My vitamin d level is 21. Doctor advice to take d rise sachet twice a week for 5 weeks and once a month for a year is it o k?

My vitamin d level is 21. Doctor advice to take d rise sachet twice a week for 5 weeks and once a month for a year is it o k?

OK but prob. More...: D rise has 60, 000 iu of vit d3. Taking it 2x/week x 5 weeks should raise levels nicely but once a month averages to 2000 iu/day ; most adults need 5-8000 iu/day to maintain optimal levels of 50-80. Taking a sachet every 10 days would give you an average of 6000 iu/day, a more appropriate dose.

What happens if I take 3 claratins?

No added benefit: Research has shown that there was some benefit going from 5mg to 10 mg dose, but after that there isn't any and so the max dose was set at 10. It is a nonsedating antihistamine and so I would venture to say that likely you will not feel much different at all. If you have bad allergies symptoms, consult your doc for evaluation and treatment rather oding yourself with claritin (loratadine). Good luck. ...Read more
