60000IU Vitamin D3

  1. 60000IU Vitamin D3

    Hi all,

    A doctor prescribed my grandmother to take 60000IU of cholecalciferol(powder form) once a week.I am wondering if i can take it once a week because i don't go out in the sun much or rather take Carlson 2000IU(2 caps) everyday.

  2. Just do what the doc says.

  3. You wanna take your grandma's meds?
    My mom got prescribed like a really high amount of VitD/week too. I don't know if you can absorb all of that at once though...
    I think it's better to take it in smaller doses throughout the week w/ fats.

  4. Yeah man...no reason for a normally healthy person to take that much at once. Take 1,000IU to 3,000IU a day. Taking it w/ calcium is good as well b/c it helps the calcium absorb better. I take mine w/ milk usually. My friend was prescribed 50,000IU a week because he had some type of thyroid problem. And your grandmother (I'm assuming) is old. Old women have calcium problems...Vitamin D3 helps w/ calcium absorption...put it together.

  5. Stealing your grandmother's prescriptions. You should be ashamed of yourself.

  6. Dry form doesn't appear to be absorbed as well. Once a weeks vs daily dosing doesn't seem to matter either.
