Can I take a multivitamin with 400 iu vit d every day while on treatment for vit d deficiency(18.5). The treatment is taking 60k iu/week for 2 months?

In brief: Poor gall bladder

If gall bladder/liver is not working well vit d would not get absorbed being fat soluble.
Vit d 400iu is a low dose for deficiency need vit d3 5000 units with vitamin k2 which is the co factor for absorption. If levels still low need gall bladder and liver cleanse.

In brief: Yes you can

Obviously the 60k iu/week is your main treatment but you don't need to worry about the 400 iu in the multivitamin.
