This is just a nutritional supplement, so for most people there are no real side effects, other than perhaps a bit of nausea due to the high dosage.

However, some people can be sensitive to it and may experience some bad reactions, which can include: muscle/joint pain, irritability, dizziness, insomnia, heart palpitations, chest pain, excess stomach acid, severe facial flushing and the list actually goes on and on.

Vitamin D also has a long half-life, it takes about a month to reach 50% in your body, so if you experience detrimental effects, it can take a long time to get back to normal.

I'm sorry, but I don't have any information on the inactive ingredients of the one manufactured by Pliva. However, from what I've seen most Vitamin D tablets are white, which would mean they don't contain any dye.

Are there any other questions or comments?

After leaving my docs office his new nurse called me and said my d levels were low. I knew this as I malasorb and we have been working on it for 3 years. She prescribed vit d2 1.25 mg 50,000 unit I took it on a Thursday and on Sunday about noon the trouble started I could not walk without intense pain I had to use a walker and have my husband assist me. I went for an MRI and they said it is muscle spasam. I think it is related to this pill. I do have a pain in my stomach and a band of pain around my back. I am in the bed from the pain. When I walk it is very painful. Just lying in the bed is painful. I will not take this ever again. Does anyone know how long this one pill will take to get out of my body? Has anyone else had this happen?

Muscle spasms and pain related to Vitamin D are most likely due to a subclinical magnesium deficiency that has gone unrecognized. Vitamin D 'uses up' magnesium, as well as Vitamin A, some B vitamins, and Vitamin K. You can see the page on Vitamin D and Magnesium here.


Vitamin D should never be given alone, but should be given as a complement of vitamins that are 'cofactors' of Vitamin D so that these types of uncomfortable Vitamin D side effects don't occur. Additionally, you should not be given this as a prescription because prescription vitamin d is the wrong kind of vitamin d. You should be given Vitamin D3- which is the 'over the counter' kind.
