If you are taking a supplement with cholecalciferol and it's present in an adequate dose in the supplement then you don't need to take Oscal 500 with D.
However if you are really deficient and there is very little cholecalciferol in the supplement then you should take Oscal 500 with D.
These are the recommended dose details.
Cholecalciferol Dosing Information
