Is 50 000 IU's a Day of Vitamin D Going to Make Me Overdose?
I have been diagnosed with an extreme vitamin D deficiency after having blood work done and my doctor prescribed me 50,000 IU of vitamin D a DAY! The pharmacist where I get my prescriptions filled says he's never heard of anyone taking this high of an amount daily.
I have also heard that doctors usually prescribe a calcium supplement while on high dosages of vitamin D, which he didn't prescribe. I'm very worried about Vitamin D toxicity with these high amounts..
Could someone please help me and let me know if this high amount should cause concern?
