    I was starting to feel better Thursday and tried to eat a little. I was still sore from Wednesday and had a bad headache. Thursday night the stomach cramps, nausea, diarrhea, and a low grade fever came back. I am going to talk to my Doctor about this med.

    This is my 3rd week on Vit D Ergo 50,000 units. The very first week my overall joint pain was almost gone. Especially my leg pain at night. Energy level is up. I have a feeling of "getting better". I live in Washington state where sunshine is hard to come by in the winter months. I wish my doctor had put me on this a long time ago. I have had no side effects, so far.

    diarea, vomiting, completely lathargic, incompasitative condition after 12 hours of taking 50,000mg D2 Rx. Not alot they can do but to wait it out. Make sure you start slow and build up versus the other way around. The Max you can buy OTC is 2500mg, why can a dr presc 50,000 mg???
