I am 18 years old and a male, is it ok if I take 5000 iu vitamin D3 and a multi vitamin every day? Thank you a lot for answering my questions

I am 18 years old and a male, is it ok if I take 5000 iu vitamin D3 and a multi vitamin every day? Thank you a lot for answering my questions

Yes, totally OK: Most multivitamins contain about 400! u of vit d per day. I advise about 5000 iu of vit d a day in the winter months to achieve an optimal blood level of vit. D but the total of 5400 units a day is quite safe. Toxicity is not known to occur unless one takes at least 40, 000 units a day! -see http://articles. Mercola.

Vit D3 & Multi: Most people need at least 1000-2000 iu vit d3 every day, but this amount might include what you get in food, etc. Have you had your 25 (oh) vit d level checked? Without knowing what is also in your multivitamin, it's hard to answer about taking 5000 iu more. You want a 25 (oh) vit d level of at least 50 for optimal health. Http://ods. Od.nih.

With a vitamin D of 20, Might I feel better (fatigue, etc) after 2 months of taking 2000 IU vitamin D3?

With a vitamin D of 20, Might I feel better (fatigue, etc) after 2 months of taking 2000 IU vitamin D3?

OnlyIfDueToVitDLevel: VitD level of less than 20 is considered as deficiency and20to30as insufficiency. You will be classify as almost deficient and we treat with dose of 50000 per week for 8 weeks to load up and then maitainance of 1000 units daily. You taking 2000 units a day for two months should have shown improvement in your fatigue if it was due to VitD drficiency. I suggest get a repeat level done in a month ...Read more

My wife has been prescribed 30000 iu vitamin D3 for delusional activity. Is this better treatment than atypical antipsychotic medicine?

My wife has been prescribed 30000 iu vitamin D3 for delusional activity. Is this better treatment than atypical antipsychotic medicine?

No, not "better": If your wife has delusional activity, she needs to be seen and treated by a psychiatrist -- who may well prescribe atypical antipsychotic medicines. Vitamin d deficiency has known relationship to depression, but not necessarily delusional disorders. If she is very deficient by blood levels, 30, 000 iu could be reasonable temporarily. I would see replacement as only part of her treatment. ...Read more

Took 3000 iu vitamin D3 daily for a week, I recently had cheekbone implants made of rib cartilage. Read that high D3 can cause bone loss. Will taking that dose have resorbed some of the implants?

No.: The amount and duration of vitamin D you've taken isn't enough to cause any long term, much less immediate, problems. Vitamin D toxicity can raise serum calcium levels primarily by resorbing bone. But cartilage is a non-bony fibrous tissue which isn't directly affected by vitamin D metabolism. While taking 3000 IU D3 supplement shouldn't cause you harm, there's no real benefit either. ...Read more

5 weeks pregnant. Had been taking 4, 000-5, 000 IU vitamin D3 daily. I read that high doses can cause birth defects in first trimester. Should I worry?

Vitamin D: Most women do not need that much vitamin D on a daily basis but if your obstetrician has uncovered very low levels follow that advice. Otherwise go to a store and purchase bottles of either 1000 or 2000 units. Usually you do not need an expensive vitamin D test. ...Read more

If I am taking 2, 000 IU of vitamin d3, probiotics, and omeprezole, when do I take all of these in a day?

If I am taking 2, 000 IU of vitamin d3, probiotics, and omeprezole, when do I take all of these in a day?

All at once: The "probiotic" is of uncertain value. An interesting idea which is still in its crude infancy. It has not been proved to work. We have a long way to go before we really discover how to improve the bacterial populations of our colons. The D3 is double the usual best dose. Get 1000u next time. Do not persist long-term with PPI omeprazole unless there is a clear medical indication. ...Read more

I got a nice tan today after staying out in the sun. I take 2, 000 IU of vitamin D3 daily by supplement. Is this safe?

Don't worry: About the vitamin D aspect in the scenario, but rather make sure in the long run you are good about long term sun protection as the UVA and UVB rays can cause cancer with prolonged exposure. Even with copious sun exposure and vit D supplementation you are not likely to ever run into vit D toxicity issues. ...Read more

Can I take 1000 iu of vitamin D3 daily in addition to the 50, 000 iu one time weekly of vitamin d3. The 50000 is prescription and my level was at 26?

Vitamin D: Sharon,
Vitamin D 1000 units a day are OK but you don't need the 50000 units.
In the summer you might not even need the 1000 but it won't do you any harm.
Don't forget sunscreen. ...Read more

Can I take a multi vitamin along with my calcium and vitamin d? I take 1200 mg of calcium and 800 iu of vitamin d3.

Try another meal: While it might not pose a problem, high dose calcium can interfere with some other vit/mineral absorption. So if you are going to take it, it might as well have a chance to help you. I would suggest separating the MVI (multivitamin) from the ca+vitd to different meal times / times of day. ...Read more

Should I supplement with calcium if I'm taking 1, 000 IU of vitamin D3 due to deficiency?

Vitamin D deficiency: Was your D deficiency measured w/a lab test? Did you doctor recommend 1K of D? That's not a lot of D. Please do what doc says. If calcium is low you can supplement w/it. You may be thinking of the need for D when taking calcium for low calcium but it is not necessary the other way around. Make sure you are taking D3. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Multivitamins: Are like an insurance policy for when we don't eat right, don't sleep well, or are especially stressed. Go to a good store or get some guidance because the popular brands are typically very week and not helpful. The dose (read label and check that half or more of the ingredients are several 100 per cent above RDA. Dose more important than a long list. D is good if low on lab test. ...Read more

What happens if we take 200000 iu (5 mg) of vitamin D3 once in a month by oral injection then how much iu are we going to take daily?

Vitamin D Dose: You are asking about dosing by "oral injection". Oral typically means you are going to swallow it. Injection typically means you are using a needle to inject it either into the muscle or into the subcutaneous tissue.
