I have been taking vitamin e (400iu) for 3 months, stopped 1 week ago, been getting palpations, is this normal withdrawal, or is there any symptoms.

Probably other thing: Vitamin E 400 is a standard dose although much medical data lately suggests that it actually is not useful. There is no withdrawal pattern from this.

I overdosed vitamin E should I seek medial help or the symptoms will go away since I've stopped taking it?

More info please: Exactly how did you overdose on vit. E? Taking a large amount at once generally causes little harm except diarrhea & cramps for a few hours, as the body can't absorb much at once.

We have no good food sources for vitamin d or iodine. I recommend multivit, vit d, and fish oil for everyone. ...Read more
