... daily for 2 days. I am very worried as I am on quite a lot of other medications. I havent started taking them yet as I need a second opinion. Up to now I have been taking Vitamin D3 1,000IU but hasn't gone up in the last 2 months? Any advise please? Thank you
Colecalciferol is the name for vitamin D3 in a nice form which is more than 2 times the bio-availability of the other one.
In Australia all this can be bought at the supermarket in bulk, so I take 1000IU D3 (colecalciferol) daily and a 100,000 IU single dose every 6 months or so on prescription. There are no side effects from the high dose.
