    my doctor told me today to start taking it. I'm just wondering if I have to work my way up to the 2,000 she recommended or if I can start taking that amount immediately

    Hmmm my doctor put me on pre-natals so i'm prepared for when we "start trying". I wonder how much vitamin d is in it?? i remember back in the day vitamin d was ignored and we were told yeah it's not important. Ha! How time changes things.

    adyldrop - see if the label lists it; if it does, then it will tell you how much is there.

    I started taking the Vit. D this morning. I think that I'm starting to feel better, but I will reserve judgment for a couple of days.

    Has anyone started feeling better the same day when he/she started taking it?

    Of course he's going to say that--he is a skin specialist.
    It only takes approx 15 minutes a day of sunshine so your body can have vitamin D naturally.

    Sunscreen is one of the reasons so many people are deficient, besides a poor diet.

    I burn very easily but I can be outside for 15 minutes without any redness. Of course one shouldn't go out in the hottest part of the day. Good way to get a sunburn.

    I am allergic to sunscreen so don't use it anyway--am just mindful of how long I have been out.

    With all the great information coming from Lady Diana and Lisanne it sounds like you both have medical background.

    Am I right?? Just an observation.

    read or heard recently that for cold and flu season while taking vit C to add Vit D. The Vit D helps boost the effect of the Vit C.
    Was news to me, but hey whatever works.

    I have been using vitamin D 2000 units, but it melts under my tongue, bypasses the "digestive loss" from going through the stomach, goes directly into the bloodstream. Have been feeling great for weeks now.
