I'm prone to headaches and have asthma. A few of the reviews have me afraid it will trigger severe attack of one or both of these. Would it be safer to take first dose with a meal? Lots to drink? Does it matter?
I have not taken D2. Is this 50000 IU weekly?
I was told by my by my physician to take D3 5000 IU Daily which I have done for 2 months now. Any side effects I've had aren't concerning and are no worse than symptoms of D deficiency.
Also, there could be exceptions, but vitamins should be taken with a meal to increase absorption.
