I just got diagnosed as vitamin D deficient today. My levels were at a 6. My doctor prescribed me 50,000 units of vitamin d once weekly. What are other people’s experiences with taking this high of dose?

      i take the same thing once a week! i’ve been taking it for about 6 months now. no side effects or anything. it helps with my high pth level.

      Hi i got diagnosed with vitamin d deficiency this week since my level was at a 14 and i feel so horrible. I'm curious were you experiencing dizziness, fatigue/exhausting all the time? Because i have that plus major headaches and spotty vision and I'm getting an MRI soon for that.

      I'm on that exact dose! I haven't noticed anything different, the deficiency itself makes me insanely dizzy. I don't know what I even felt like before this.

        @Cervidae Me too, it works well for me. I think it just differs per person. I’ve been doing for over a year and it keeps my levels normal.

      Hello! I’ve been taking this for almost a year now, I do feel a bit of a change. Although truthfully I am not as consistent as I should be, so when I miss a day of taking the weekly medication it feels like a withdrawal and I get really bad dizzy spells. That’s a “my bad” though! Lol

      Hi! I'm doing it for the first time in my life as well but so far I've had no problems?

      I’ve done it a couple times in my life. Never had any issues, always makes me feel better.

      Did you feel any different after doing the large dose?
