Advice & Tips: I loved this pill when I first took it. The original start was a weekly pill. My level was 23 and after 6 months I am only at 32. However I know the difference from then to now. My actual prescribed way of taking Vit D now is 50,000 iu monthly and 400iu in the AM and 400iu in the eveing everyday. So in total every month assuming my math is correct is 72,400iu every month.
