You should take vitamin d with some sort of fat- any meal is fine. But you should be aware that taking D2 is NOT the recommended form of Vitamin D. Please take a look at the page on Vitamin D3 to see why that is preferred.
You may also be interested in taking a look at this page on Magnesium and Vitamin D to see why it's not the best idea to 'just' take large doses of Vitamin D without taking magnesium to prevent some of the adverse effects that can occur with large doses of Vitamin D.

I have been so-o tired, memory lost was so bad I quit my job. I thought my dose of my Thyroid was off the its at 75 ml. Dr. Said no at 4.1 it was okay. The lab said it was low. She has put me on D2 for 4 wks. Then cont with 800 ml every other day. I will request a copy of the past 3 lab test I had done for the last 3 wks.

Kerri Knox, RN Says:
Overdose on Vitamin D2 is very unlikely if you are taking 50,000 IU's once a week. Even if you took your entire 8 week prescription all at once, overdose would be unlikely. Please take a look at the page on Overdose on Vitamin D to see why this is unlikely. What is more likely is that you are simple experiencing negative side effects from the Vitamin D. This is a separate problem from Vitamin D overdose.
well the doctor told me the same thing but you shouldn't be having pain in your legs etc unless something is causing it. they need to find out what is causing it and explain why you have to take the vitamin D2.i found out my pain was not just pain it is lupus. But I pray yours is not the same. god bless

Hi all, my Vitamin-D is 10 mg/ml as the blood report reads. normal is 25 - 80 mg/ml.
I am starting to take D2 1.25 50000 units weekly for 12 week. I have read all the negative comments, but when someone takes a drug and has no side affects most are not going to come here. No reason to.
When you go to a restaurant and the food and service is great, do you tell the manager. If you have bad food and horrible service you are probably going to talk with the manager or owner. That is our nature.
I will post back after my first dose and give my opinion, positive or negative.
