 3  Osteopenia Diagnosis Dizziness, tiredness, low energy, aching gums, acid reflux symptoms Had thyroidectomy and take acid reflux medicine too. Got bone density scan last year and diagnosed with osteopenia from my doctor. Wants me to take 5,000 IU along with magnesium. When I take 5,000 I get immediate side effects listed above. If I take 1,000 IU or no more than 2,000 IU my side effects lessen some and it's more tolerable. It has helped my vitamin d and calcium levels. I take vitamin D3 every other day either 1,000 IU or 2,000 IU along with my daily multivitamin with food. F 36 1 years

 2  Deficiency Dry eyes & mouth, insomnia, constipation, hot flashes, tinnitus (probably due to combination with calcium causing hypercalcemia), killed off my libido. Dry eyes (I have Sjogren's) got so bad I had to cut the dosage to just 2.5 mg (100 IU) a day and they still remained dryer than usual. On a positive note, it lowered my TSH-level so much I could quit 75% of my thyroid meds. Side effects ceased when taken via transdermal route as it isn't broken down by liver first. Dry eyes - could be telltale sign you're allergic to steroids which this hormone is! F 53 2 years

 1  Insufficient levels 34 High BP, Dizziness,Headache, Bloating. I would advise everyone to go in sun than popping in pills. If you are in a zone where sun shines less take a lower dose. Start with 1000iu and go a max to 5000iu. Always cycle these multivitamins..I.e dont take them for very long periods.. give your body a break. M 35 14 days

 2  Prescribed for a deficiency I collapsed with undiagnosed sleep apnea and had many health problems, including Vitamin D deficiency. Tried taking these vitamins for two months but they made me shaky, tingly, anxious and depressed! All these symptoms went away when I stopped taking them. So strange. Be cautious about taking them and monitor your side effects carefully. F 50 2 months

 5  low Vit D, tiredness, depression Can't sleep well if I take too high a dose or too late at night. My level was 17. Dr first put me on script 50,000 D2. Didn't do much after 6 months and she remarked she had trouble getting patients levels up. After studying, I ditched this and got 10,000 D3. Used that for 3 months and level went up to 76. Now, use 5,000 daily and level stays b/t 50-70. Can get thru the day now without a nap and don't have to talk myself into doing my normal routine. Happier in general. F 59 7 years

 4  Vitamin D deficiency, non-specific Mild nausea, loss of appetite, adrenaline, heart pounding/racing, tired, headache My number was 12.5. I rarely have any side effects from medications, but this is like having a mild flu... it sucks, but not sure what the alternative is. I have Crohn's Disease (remicade) and hypothyroid (levothyroxin) but more likely it's my long-term, hype-rvigilant use of daily sunscreen, hats, and long-sleeves through the summer. F 42 12 weeks

 5  osteoporosis only side effects have been improved health! diagnosed at age 50 with osteoporosis. Found Vit D level to be only 20. Taking 6000iu daily raised level to 48, so I now take 7000iu to get level to 60+. My varicose veins are better, as is life-long eczema. Feel better and have less body aches. I think my body was screaming for it for many many years, and I think it is a miracle pill!! Of 11 people that I have convinced to get levels checked, 9 were too low! Epidemic... F 50 6 months

 3  Vit D deficient due to MS None I cannot seem to get my levels above 19-25 range. Been on this for 2 years. Lowest I have been is 7. That is when I was very sick. They tell me that is also the source of this deep bone pain I have.. deep in the bones. My PCP just increased it yesterday to 4 times weekly. I pray it helps and I have good results. I also have Ovarian Cancer. F 38 2 years
