In brief: Be careful.
Regardless of what you have read on "natural health" web sites, there is no credible evidence that oral vitamin d is an effective treatment for psoriasis.
High doses can raise your calcium levels to the point where you can develop kidney stones and other serious medical problems. 800-1000 iu is a safe daily dosage to prevent vitamin d deficiency.
