Tell me more
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Marcia,

Can you tell me more about your 'toxic reaction'? Weight loss is not necessarily a problem. There are many people reading this who would LOVE to have a 'toxic reaction' of weight loss!

So please tell me more about your reaction- and depending upon what it was, it may NEVER be safe for you to take vitamin d again.

Toxic issues with D2 and switching to D3
by: Marcia

I mentioned earlier that I had had breathing problems - at no time was my reaction life-threatening - I was not actually gasping for breath - but I did have some noticeable sleep apnea symptoms that night (I use a CPAP machine). The sleep apnea symptoms were much more noticeable than I usually had been having. All in all, the symptoms were frightening, but probably not actually life-threatening. However, the frequent urination, weight loss of 7 lbs. in 2 and a half days, and the thirst, were very much a problem & concern to me. I am diabetic. Again, please comment on whether it would be safe to take D3 in a multivitamin. It has been 3 weeks since taking D2. Marcia





Unfortunately, I can't
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Marcia,

Unfortunately, there would be absolutely no way that I could possibly know if it would be safe for you to ever take vitamin d again.

If it was truly an allergic reaction, then you could have another 'toxic reaction' much worse the next time. I would have no idea if a reduced dose would allow you to take Vitamin D with no problems...

Sorry that I can't help you there....

Considering that Vitamin D3 is completely different than D2, even if I had a toxic reaction to D2, wouldn't it be O.K. to still take D3, since I had safely taken it before? Especially after waiting one month and only taking 500 mg of D3?

Allergic Reactions are Funny...
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Marcia,

I wish that I could tell you it's safe, but I have no idea. Without knowing what kind of reaction that you had, I cannot tell you that it's safe.

Since you had shortness of breath, could it be possible that you had a very mild form of an anaphalactic reaction? This is a very severe allergic reaction that can led to death.

And the problem with this type of reaction is that you can have no problems with that substance your entire life then you have a reaction and you will always have a reaction for the rest of your life- even with a tiny amount.

Did you have that type of reaction? I don't know, it sounds unlikely that you did, but you DID become very very sick and you had shortness of breath when you took a pill.

And there is absolutely no way that you are going to get ME to tell you it's safe to take vitamin d ever again in your entire life.

Is it possible that you COULD safely take it? Sure. Are you going to get ME to tell you it's safe? No way...

Sorry that I couldn't help...

toxic issues with D2, switching to D3

I called the company that compounded the prescription D2 that I had a toxic reaction to, and they said it sounded like I was allergic to D2 itself, since I had the frequent urination & thirst. They said if I wanted to take D3 again, I'd have to find the very smallest dose I could, and do it gradually. Do you have any suggestions about what vitamins, if not D3, that I could be taking? Is it true that I could still be experiencing more toxic symptoms even in two or three months?
