In brief: Yes
Vitamin d is stored in fat cells.
If someone takes in too much vitamin d, they could have too much calcium in their urine, raising the risk for kidney stones, or too much calcium in the blood, causing nausea, constipation, excessive thirst and urination, muscle weakness, depression, or confusion.

There are no documented cases o vitamin D toxicity on less than 20,000 IU daily.

Many more people have too little vitamin D than too much especially those with poor absorption.

In brief: Yes, but difficult
You can overdose on anything, particularly when it's over-the-counter. There is generally no real reason to take more than 2, 000 u of d3/day over the long term. There is also generally no benefit.
Higher doses may be needed short term, since it makes months for d to get in your system. Follow your doctor's instructions.
