Hi Missy - I had some trouble with that dosage - I actually had more pain and fatigue -had to quit that and go to 1000 perday - and after 2 mos. of that my levels were wonky and the rheumie took me off that as well. I know lots of people get great benefits - but I think there are always exceptions. Vit D is a hormone, and it can get to toxic levels and throw your calcium out of whack. My GP was not thrilled with the 50k dose to begin with. I think it's worth a try - don't get me wrong - I just wanted you to know there is another side - and it doesn't work for everyone.
thanks guys...yes it is D3...it says Maximum D3 on the info phamphlet that came with it. Tes i am gonoing to try it...hopefully it was take away some of the muscle fatique that I havr. Also I have read that low vit d levels and HBP is linked so maybe it will help with that too
