Does Anyone Here Take Vitamin D 50,000 IU 3x Per Week? Then Do You Also Take Calcium?

Does Anyone Here Take Vitamin D 50,000 IU 3x Per Week? Then Do You Also Take Calcium?

I've read that taking high dose Vit. D can cause your body to have increased Calcium and that could cause kidney stones. I'm wondering if anyone takes high dose Vit. D and also Calcium at the same time. I'm thinking of holding the Calcium for later when I'm back down to a normal Vit. D dosage. Thanks for your thoughts.

I only take 1,000 iu daily. I was taking a higher dose, but made me have diarrhea, so I went back down to the 1,000. I do drink alotta milk, so don't take Calcium supplements other than Women's one-a-day when I remember. When I am outside in the sun, I skip it for that day.

I'm not sure about the calcium/kidney stones piece but I take Vit d3 10,9000,000 iu daily. My level is extremely low and we just cannot seem to get it to budge.

Candace I think you are thinking of Magnesium paired with Calcium..they come together in one pill.

I thought vitamin for needed to be paired with calcium to be absorbed by the body, but I'm not sure if that.....
