    I was recently diagnosed with an extremely low vitamin d level of 10 and prescribed 50,000 iu of Drisdol once a week for 12 weeks.I was reluctant to take such a high dose since every over the counter Vitamin D supplement I've ever taken has triggered my migraines.

    Before I was diagnosed with Vit D deficiency, I had severe aches and pains in my joints. It was so bad that I had to use a walker and couldn't drive my car. I also suffered severe depression.

When it was time for my pap exam, my ob/gyn did tests and called me saying I needed Vita ... Show Full Comment
