In brief: Yes

Go to your doctor to figure out your daily dose requirements.
The daily maintenance dose of vitamin d ranges from 600 to 2000 iu of vitamin d daily. Lab tests can show serum levels to guide how much you should be supplementing. Note 14, 000 iu will lead to toxic levels.

In brief: May be its too much

In people whose 25ohd is 20 to 30 ng/ml (50 to 75 nmol/l), treatment usually includes 800 to 1000 international units of vitamin d3 by mouth daily, usually for a three month period.
However, many individuals will need higher doses. The "ideal" dose of vitamin d is determined by testing the individual's 25ohd level, and increasing the vitamin d dose if the level is not within normal limits.

In brief: Maybe

This all depends on your current vit d level.
You may not be able to absorb that much daily. I would suggest getting your vit d level checked.
