I was also scared to take this. My Dr put me on 50,000 IU a week after my blood work showed my Vit D level at 19. I put of taking it for a while and then did. Zero side effects. I am now taking 2,000 IU gummies a day in addition to my multi vitamin so a total of 3000 IUs a day.
How low was your levels?

Hi Lindsey, mine was 19 too, my doctor said normal is 30-100.  My sisters was 7, she has been on the 50,000 IU weekly for a year now, but her level is close to normal now.  Do you feel better physically with your vitamin D level up?  I'm having muscular aches and pains and slight fatigue right now which is why I was tested.  I'm going to take my first pill Sunday.

I have prescription for Vitamin D also.  My levels were 24.  After a lot of reading I decided against the prescription of D because it was D2 and D3 is absorbed better by the body.  I bought 5000IU's of D3 over the counter and take that every day.

Daisy my Vit D3 or D was like 54 in my blood test a few months ago. My doctor said not alot of people are really good on there Vit D. I have been taking D3 like 2-5000 IU a day, or like 3-4 days a week for like 5 years.
