My 32 year old daughter has experienced symptoms of extreme fatigue for some time. The only medication she takes regularly is Luvox for OCD, which she has taken for 15 years. She recently had labs and her results were as follows

Vitamin D 11
Folate 11
B12 396
MG 2.1
Ferritin 30
The doctor put her on a B12 vitamin and Numedica D3 liquid 600 IU four drops a day. She noticed an improvement almost immediately. The energy was great, but now she feels manic, like she can't calm down. She has been on this medication for 2 weeks. Should she discontinue this D3 or change to a different dosage? I value your opinion.

I love your website.

1200 IU's a day! Ugh..

Hi Pam,

So, it looks like your doctor put your SEVERELY vitamin d deficient daughter on a dose that is appropriate for a daily maintenance dose for a newborn infant!

The dose that they are giving her is about an 1/8th or even a 1/16th of what she should be taking to bring up her levels. I can't believe what a ridiculously silly inadequate dose that they are giving her, ugh!

So, please take a look at my page on Vitamin D Therapy and follow the instructions there to bring her levels up. With a level as low as hers, she could very safely even double that dose for the first month to bring her levels up more quickly.

Next, please read my page on Magnesium and Vitamin D. Mania (and OCD) are classic
Signs of Magnesium Deficiency
(and probably a bunch of other nutrients too, but magnesium is primary in OCD and mania type problems).

So, in other words doctors have been giving her drugs for 15 years for a treatable nutrient deficiency that could impact her bones and her heart health for the rest of her life. That's why I do NOT like drugs. They cover up symptoms and don't address the underlying cause of them.

And if she's extremely deficient in both magnesium and vitamin d, it makes you wonder what else she is deficient in that doctors just haven't or don't have the ability to test for. It's nearly impossible to be deficient in single isolated nutrients, but doctors only test for a couple (and many with tests that don't even test for what they are supposed to test for!)...
