The latest suggestion is to take 2000 IU a day.  

You could add some other supplements to help you feel better also.  Send me a note if you want some ideas.  I will want more info.

I would make an appointment with your Doctor it sounds like you have a Vitamin B12 deficiency which is nothing you just need more iron & have anemia & a chemical imbalance. If that level gets to low from what my doctors And my husband tell me it can get very serious & kill you if not treated so continue to take the medicine meanwhile make an appointment really quick with your primary doctor. They will change it. It could be a reaction to the medicine. without going to a doctor it's hard to tell but definately definitaly stay on the medicine until you see the Dr.
