Overdosing What Vitamin Pills Can Lead To Death
A ; D- very rare: One can only overdose on fat soluble vitamins (a, d, e) except vit. B6 (which should be limited to 250 mg/day). But it takes huge amounts to overdose. The average adult would need to take about 2 million units of a to overdose, or 200, 000 iu/day for several months. Vit d toxicity is rare unless one takes at least 40, 000 iu/day for months.

Not reported but...: High doses of Vit. C are widely used and generally well-tolerated. The most common side effect of doses of 2 grams or more is loose stools and nausea. Other side effects are rare. In searching I have not seen any reports of insomnia. See http://tinyurl.com/zzz5rdx However, most Vit C is derived from corn.

Too much cetirizine: Too much of any drug could be dangerous but Cetirizine is generally very safe in usual doses. It is not uncommon for allergists to prescribe Cetirizine in higher than recommended doses up to 40 mg per day. This does not mean it is completely safe since sedation is common at this dose. Over-the-counter medications should be used at the recommended doses unless supervised by a physician. ...Read more
Can anyone tell me what can cause high vitamin d, besides taking supplements or getting too much sun?
Diseases: Hi. There are several diseases that cause high blood calcium by creating the active form of vitamin D (calcitriol). These include granulomatous diseases (e.g., sarcoidosis, tuberculosis), and leukemia/lymphoma. High blood calcium, hi calcitriol, and suppressed PTH prompt this evaluation. Good luck! ...Read more
Not necessarily: Salbutamol, though used as bronchodilator, could be abused and used as doping agent to possibly enhance athletic performance. Side effects are many but the most worrisome include myocardial ischemia though rare, hypotension, and hypokalemia-low potassium. Though all three are not fatal, in patients with underlying renal heart of irregular beats, could possibly be really dangerous. Take care! ...Read more

No- unless with iron: The only ingredient potentially found in gummy vitamins that could cause a lethal overdose is iron. However, most gummy vitamins do not contain iron- i actually searched quite a bit and could not find any. This is likely to prevent overdose problems. And if they did you would have to take a huge amount- a lethal dose is at least 60 mg/kg, so an overdose for a 50 lb person would be about 1400 mg. ...Read more
