    Hi 14 is very low. I was 23 when I had very bad depression and sleeping all the time. Now after taking supplements daily it is up to 53.

      Yes had headaches all the time. I am taking D3 5000 units daily. It took about a year to get to that level. Are you in the US? If so just get it at Target or CVS or any pharmacy.

    it's the PPI meds that do this you will need to take vitamin D3 always I have had it on a prescription but can never take it because it always makes my stomach upset so I get mine from Amazon look for one with no added flavoring and salt and other things you don't really need I am take one with no flavor it's just vitamin D3 with extra virgin oil it's 4000iu two drops per day you can add to food or drinks 8000iu in total is a good amount to take each day the dose your on at the moment is to bring the levels up and then you should be given a lower dose like I'm taking to keep your levels up and also you should have a blood test in about six months to see what your vit D levels are do you have fair loss of thinning I do but as the levels are farting better do is my hair
