Yes, it can. I've read about some who take upto 20,000mg a day. Now... if they can intake that much.. I don't know.




http://nutrition.about.com/od/askyournutritionist/f/absorb.htm



This is what I found from the nutritionist on this that website



"The amount of vitamins your body absorbs will depend on several factors. Some vitamins need to be taken with food, some on an empty stomach. Absorption is affected by when your take your vitamins, all at once or if you spread them out during the day. Some vitamins are taken in very small amounts called micrograms and some are taken in milligrams. Anyway, you can absorb more than 2000 total milligrams of vitamins. For example, many people can absorb 5000 to 7000 mg of vitamin C alone per day. You can"

There doesn't appear to be any firm number on the absorption rate, there's various studies that point to varied numbers (at least from what I could find). Most of the information I read guides people to a maximum of 2,000mg.

There doesn't appear to be any proven harm by high levels, and any C that isn't absorbed is passed through the urine. The only side effects that may happen by high levels are like diahrrea and whatnot. Of course, I'm sure there are 100 different angles on this.

So far, I've not had any ill effects of my supplements. I may well run into issues as I continue to add additional supplements, but I'm willing to do so to find a way to fight this fatigue.

Some other links I read were:

I've been taking 6000mg for over 3 months now, with no problems. The only thing I've noticed.... No more colds [img]/community/emoticons/devil.gif[/img]

no one should be taking any supplements or vitamins without the guidance of a professional. (internet does not count! go to a holistic doctor!) too much vitamin C can be dangerous, as with all vitamins or supplements. and yes, your body can only absorb so much and everyone's different. wouldn't wanna waste money on something that my body can't use to its full extent

I'm not going to agree with this as a blanket statement.  Something like taking a multivitamin replaces many of the essential vitamins/supplements normally gained through a decent diet.  Some individuals don't eat proper diets, therefore supplement themselves.
 
However, when someone has a serious unknown illness, it would be best if they didn't blindly take vitamins/supplements that could potentially cause adverse effects.
 
I'm not minimizing the risks associated with blindly taking high quantities of vitamins and supplements, but holistic doctors aren't the holy grail either.  They're fairly opinionated in their direction for vitamin/supplement usage and dosage, therefore you'll most likely not get the same answer from two different individuals.
