I am a 32 year old male and weigh 80 kg. I have Vitamin D deficiency 3mg/dl and calcium deficiency 7mg/dl, I suffer from (BD, BPD, overvalued ideas and anxiety disorder). I take Zoloft 50 mg, Abilify 10 mg, Depakine 1500 mg, and Lamictal 200 mg. What is the best dose of vitamin D for me that does not interact with my medications and my illnesses? I hope anyone who has any idea about this can tell me please.
What is the best dose for the treatment of vitamin D deficiency in my case?

Hi Sunland moon -
Only your doctor can tell you the proper dosage. I can only tell you my experience.
I was diagnosed as being severely deficit in vitamin D several years ago by my doctor. I don't how much, but she said it was severe. She put me on vitamin D3 (not just vitamin D, there is a difference, but I don't remember what), 5000 units a week. My doctor told me in order for me to get the amount of vitamin D my body needed without taking a supplement, I would need to lay outside nude everyday until I was "crispy." She said no one gets enough Vitamin D just by being outside in the sun. My husband's doctor told him "people wear to many clothes. They don't expose enough of their skin to the sun."
At the time my doctor prescribed the vitamin D3 for me I was 155 pounds, 5' 3" and outside almost every day. I am now 135 pounds and rarely go outside, so my doctor has upped my vitamin D3 to 1000 units a day and I seem to be better. I will know just how much with this next blood test I have coming up.
I get my vitamin D3 at the store, it's an OTC (over the counter) supplement.
As I said in the beginning, check with your doctor and see what they feel is the best dosage for you.
If you are looking for interactions between vitamin D3 and the medications you are taking, or any medications, check here on **Drugs.com**. **Drugs.com** has a section where you can put in what you are taking and it will tell you if they are safe to take together.
You can also Google Vitamin D and Vitamin D3 to find out the difference.
I wish you well.
