Take it later: Hi. Both of those drugs are nice in that they have a long half-life. Therefore, if you forget a dose, take it when you think of it. Try not to miss your medications. If you miss the once weekly vitamin D, take it when you think of it and resume normal schedule. If you miss a day of Synthroid, take 2 the next day; miss 2 days, take 3 the following day. Good luck! ...Read more

My vitamin d level is 18 ..why vitamin d supplement gives me horrible muscle cramps ..should I take calcium with vitamin d or take vitamin d only ?

My vitamin d level is 18 ..why vitamin d supplement gives me horrible muscle cramps ..should I take calcium with vitamin d or take vitamin d only ?

Unusual response: This is a very unusual reaction to Vit D. You are more likely to be reacting to the other ingredients in the supplement so look for a pure Vit D3 with minimal additives. Most adults need 5-8000 iu/day to get optimal levels of 50-80. You probably don't need calcium unless your diet is low in calcium but it is wise to take Vit K with Vit D. Muscle cramps may be caused by low Magnesium. See comment: ...Read more

Are there different tests for Vitamin D & Vitamin D3? Specifically: Vitamin D3 (25 OH D) and 25 (OH) Vitamin D?

Are there different tests for Vitamin D & Vitamin D3? Specifically: Vitamin D3 (25 OH D) and 25 (OH) Vitamin D?

Yes: When there is a reason to test, testing for 25-OH-VitD2 level and for 25-OH-VitD3 level, plus adding the results to get the total vitamin D level, can help the doctor check the source of the vitamin deficiency and the treatment progress. There is debate over when it would be needed to do these tests. Some doctors feel that giving people more vitamin D would avoid deficiencies and avoid lab tests. ...Read more
