Advice & Tips: Although I don't know that I really buy into all the stuff about "die off" reactions... i did notice that I had to scale my doses up... the symptoms seemed to get worse a couple of weeks after starting new dosages and i found out after the first month that i would need to start at 2000iu a day ... i worked up to 4000 over two months.
