Supplementing with vitamin d


I read your reccomendation about supplementing with Vit. D for levaquin toxicity. I have a calium blood level of 10.2 - and I have been told by my Dr. not to take vit. d because of the borderline high level (I have a normal PTH reading, yes I've ead all about hyperparathyroidism at but I've been told that I don't have a that condition.

So, I've been told by my Dr. not to supplement with Vit. D and not to take a multivitamin as this contains calcium, and I don't want a higher calcium level. This is even though my vit d. level is low in the 20s. So, I guess I cannot supplenent with Vit D or take a ultivitamin as you reccomend because of the vit d and added calcium?

Also, I can post on the forum about my case history, but my levaquin problems stem fro taking 2 500mg pills (1 each day) for pneumonia. A cascade of side effects followed.

The stiff tendons/muscles/burning feelings went away roughly six days after stopping the medication. But, they then returned, slightly less severe 7 days later. Have you ever heard of the symptoms really going away and then coming back like this?

Thank you for your time. I appreciate any advice.

Hi LB,

Yes, if your doctor told you not to take calcium or vitamin d, then don't. High calcium levels are one of the 'contraindications' for taking vitamin d, so you are right not to take it until you get the OK from a doc.

HOWEVER, high calcium levels are simply not normal and there HAS to be a reason for it. Don't give up looking for it, there just simply has GOT to be a reason for it.

Next, symptoms coming and going is called 'cycling' and it's very common. As you get better, they seem to come further and further apart.
