Get bloodwork first to check your vitamin D levels before you start taking it. You need to know what level you are at now. If you add too much vitamin D you can reach a toxic level in your body.
I've been taking malic/acid w/magnesium myself after reading about it here and doing my own research. Hasn't helped a single bit for fibro. The only reason I've stayed on it is because it has been a life saver for my constipation (something I've had since I was born). Mention malic/acid to your doctor and they will tell you not to take it because it is not FDA approved. Which does have me concerned and I am decreasing my dosage and adding even more greens in my diet instead. I wish there were more supplements that would get FDA approved instead of constantly putting out new "fibro" drugs every 3 months, but that will never happen. There is too much money to be made.
