I am taking RX Vitamin D because my level was very low. I have not had any negative side affects from the medication. In fact, it has had a very positive effect on me as my moods have gotten much better! Previous feelings of post menapausal depression are gone.

Comment:
The blood work from my annual physical showed that I was way off the low end for vitamin D. Dr. prescribed 50,000 IUs a week for 4 months and I felt the results immediately. Muscle cramping and joint pain decreased dramatically in just a few days. I now take 2000 IU a day and exercise and work without the muscle problems that I was having. This really works for me.

I have taken a very low dose of Vit D3 for about 4 mos now and have never felt better in my life. I sleep better, have a great sense of self-esteem and have lost 11 lbs. I have no side effects and I usually do have side effects whenever a new med is given to me. Wonderful, wonderful medication!!!!
