Vitamin D2 50000 1.25 Mg Over The Counter Alternative?

Updated
Lee Says:

All other comments aside, this stuff is rediculously priced, and a less expensive over the counter alternative has to exist.

The highest I've seen available over the counter is the 2,0000ius. You may be able to buy them and just take more than one, but I'd suggest asking your doctor first.

You may also want to check a local vitamin shop, as they tend to have a larger selection than most other stores. I have to take the 2,000 and that's usually the only place I can find it around here.

Are there any other questions or comments?

I was prescribed by a PCP Vit. D 1.25mg (50,000) and would like to understand what is the purpose of taking such dose, 1x week for 12 wks. with no refills? PCP said all test showed good with the exception of slightly high cholesterol but not too worry.
Guess what, I'm worried

Yes, you are right. There is an over the counter product available, and it's actually preferable to the prescription form. Your doctor is not doing you any favors prescribing you the prescription form of this vitamin. Please see the page on Prescription Vitamin D to see why you actually are better off with the over the counter form anyway. You can simply purchase Vitamin D3 (emphasis on the '3') at any health food store. 50,000 IU's per week is equivalent to approximately 7000 IU's per day. So just get an over the counter dosage that is the equivalent of 7000 IU's per day and take it daily instead of weekly. There is no downside to this, it's actually preferable.
