In brief: It's Okay

Yes, it is okay to take both vitamin C and vitamin D supplements.
You should not take more than the recommended amounts listed on the packaging. Too much of either vitamin C or D may cause gastrointestinal discomfort. In some individuals, too much vitamin C is associated with kidney stones. Too much vitamin D can also lead to muscle weakness.
