is a dose of 6000iu daily for a month safe?
by jennie underhill
In a recent blood test my vitamin D levels were 18. I have been put on lamberts vit D 1000iu, 3 tabs twice a day, amounting to 6,000 a day ONLY for one month, then they will retest my blood after 12 weeks. I was told that Surrey medical people were using this "off licence" at this dose for people deficent in vit D.
I have been on these for 3 weeks but have not noticed much change in my tiredness levels. I see from the internet that the maximum dose should be 4,000 so I am slightly worrying that 6,000 is dangerous?
Could you comment on this plus whether I should be feeling less tired by now?
