Brief Answer:
You can take Uprise D3

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

Yes you can take either of these two. These are same medicines with different brand names. Uprise D3 is available in three doses, so if you are in doubt about dose, you can check with me about that. I personally believe that Vitamin D3 should be taken in lower doses so that it does not cause side effects.

Some evidence of it

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

There is some research evidence available to state that vitamin D deficiency may cause skin problems and dry cough but it is not confirm. Vitamin D supplementation may help in these conditions.

Blemishes and dry cough cause vitamin D deficiency-this statement is incorrect.
