@leanne12 , I’m glad you’re doing well.

As far as Vitamin D3 is concerned, I think you’ll find a fair few of us are on 5,000 iu per day. I know I am. Some will be lower and a few will be higher.

@stumbler thanks for your reply. I’m going to start a higher dosage. Where would I find such a high dosage ?? I normally use Holland and Barrett 2000 iu or could I just take 2 tablets of them ones ?

@leanne12 I was advised by my MS nurse and GP to take 10,000 IU as I live in not so sunny Scotland!

I also take a double dose of kids chewable multi vitamins.

I’ve not had a cold, flu or any other viral infections since I started taking them in Feb, so something’s working, as I work in an open plan office with aircon and heating with 17 colleagues who’ve all had bugs passing between them all year!

I also take regular walks and exercise classes as advised by Neuro.

I just need to get my weight under control now, which the dietician is going to assist me with………….

You can send me a friend request if you want to know where I get the cheapest vit d3 from, my GP even took the details as he couldn’t believe I could get 100 vit d3 capsules @ 10,000 IU for under £3.

Gosh @vivien 10,000 that’s very high isn’t it I really don’t have a clue. I’ve also heard that turmeric and cod liver oil are also good to take. Thanks for all your replies guys xxx

@leanne12 , Google is your friend when you’re searching for a specific product.

Personally, I use http://www.troohealthcare.com/p-839-vitamin-d3-5000iu-365-capsules.aspx . But other suppliers are available. 😉

@leanne12 7000IU per day. It is marketed as a weekly 7000IU tablet but I take it daily.
