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.

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

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.

Most: Most doctors are taught that lab results that are in the "reference range" are normal, even when people don't feel well. This may have been the case with your "normal" bloodwork.
Your symptoms of fatigue, muscle pain and weakness could be related to low thyroid function, adrenal fatigue, hormonal imbalances and/or nutrient deficiencies. Especially because your symptoms are getting worse, you need to see a doctor who will run a thorough panel of lab tests, including several thyroid tests (not just a tsh), hormone levels, vitamin levels, and adrenal tests, who will interpret the results correctly in light of your symptoms, and be able to prescribe effective treatment. A comprehensive approach is the most likely to help you feel like yourself again. ...Read more

I am a 48 year old female who has just started working a 3rd shift job. 11:30 pm thru 7:30 am, and am having trouble adjusting. Would a multivitamin or b complex vitamin help?

I: I don't know your entire case, medical status, or physical examination so I cannot tell you for sure what the problem or solution is. But I can offer the following advice. You may have shift work sleep disorder, which is very common in night shift workers. This is due to misalignment of your circadian rhythm. I would find a sleep medicine expert nearby for a full consultation to determine what the best course of action would be. If you cannot find a sleep medicine physician, you would start with your primary care doctor. ...Read more

Hello.: Hello. People often take vitamin c separately if they are looking to take really high doses. However the body tend to urinate out the excess. Multiple vitamins should contain an adequate amount of vitamin c. By taking one pill it could be less expensive in the long run (vice a series of pills) and less complicated. Usually vitamins are helpful if you have a deficiency or you don't get an adequate dietary intake, if you fall into one of those two categories it may help. It should not cause problems wtih sleep. ...Read more

My 93 year old mother who is due to start warfarin takes a multivitamin and mineral tablet containing vitamin k. Should she stop the multivitamin?

My 93 year old mother who is due to start warfarin takes a multivitamin and mineral tablet containing vitamin k. Should she stop the multivitamin?

Most likely-Yes: Certainly, all the meds, including vitamins and over the counter need to be discussed with her warfarin/coumadin coordinator. Vit k, especially, which is a reversal agent used when the Coumadin "levels" are too high, will definitively interact with the Coumadin and make it difficult to manage properly. As stated, discuss with the treating provider for continuity of care. Best wishes. ...Read more
