    I was taking 5000 IU of Vitamin D every day and the doctor told me, after blood work was done, to stop taking it every day and only take it twice a week.

    Funny this topic should come about. My dr just put me on Vitamin D as well because my bloodwork came back showing my D level was low. Have not gotten it filled yet, but I will tomorrow. I can use all the energy I can get....

    I am also taking Vitamin D and don't feel a difference at all. I work at a doctor's office and it seems that everyone is taking this now. I do have to admit that I don't go outside as much as I use to.

    My doctor also put me on a Vit D. therapy. I don't play in the sun but I also don't stay indoors a lot so I asked him how come so many people are deficient nowadays and he told me that they've upped the minimun daily requirement; they found people need more of it. So now I take a multi vitamin for seniors (yes, I'm going to be graduating soon), calcium and Vit D. I do feel pretty good. thanks for posting this.

    I tested low for Vitamin D a couple of years ago, and the doctor put me on 50,000 once a week for a month. That brought me up to the lowest end of normal.

    She didn't say a thing about the benefits of taking it other than bone health.

    Last year, another doctor said I was supposed to keep taking it as a daily supplement (whatever the usual daily dose is). She retested me and I was still just barely in the normal range.

    I have it, and I'm going to take it right now.

    DH and I also take it and it has made such a difference. We both feel better and have a better outlook and neither of us has been sick since we started. That includes colds. I think it makes all of the difference.
