And I'm getting constant periods. I'm taking 2 multi vitamins, 1 5000 mg of vitamin D, 2 fish oil pills and B complex. I was told 3 years ago I have low vitamin D. Is this normal? My periods were normal till I started these vitamins. I have no insurance so I can't go to the doctor.

Because I was told by a doctor I vitamin D deficient. As for the fish oil I do it for Omega 3.

Fish oil has vitamin D in it. You may be taking too much.

I know this is off topic but have you ever had nervousness or get jittery fron taking D? I am having a hard time getting the amount my doc wants becauseb of issues like that.

Last time I was checked was in December of 2008. My level was a 23. I started taking vitamins because I am always so tired. I go to school full time and I have 3 kids. I felt I was deficiant in something since I am always tired.

You should only be taking 1000mg of Vit D max. Who told you to take 5000? That's WAY to much.

I read a article from Dr Tenpenny that you can't OD on vitamin D.
