  I know it can cause a few issues as I was on it, been off a approx 6 months now.....I did have to go every 6 months for blood work.

I was also told to drink plenty of water as it can cause the formation of kidney stones.....

So if ur Dr is not closely monitoring u, and ur Vit levels have a talk with him/her and mention ur concerns. My Vit D, B12 and magnesium were all watched and I was on supplements.
