Question: Hi Doc,

Earlier suggestion by you below.

You can take the following dose for vitamin D:
Vitamin D 60,000 IU once weekly for 1 month
Then continue vitamin D 1000 IU twice a week for 2 month.

I am currently taking Vitamin D 60,000 IU(Calcirol sachet).

Can you please suggest any tablets specifically for vitamin D 1000 IU ?
