Replesta vitamin D3

My doctor prescribed me these vitamin d3 wafers that I'm suppose to take weekly since my vitamin d is a little on the low side and he says vit d deficiency can cause several birth defects. So I've been taking Replesta vit d3 for 3 weeks now its one chewable tablet per week & just now I just read on the indications and use sheet "NOT TO BE USED BY PREGNANT WOMEN". Says it can cause heart defects in fetuses amongst other things.  I dont know how to feel right now. Anyone else taking this supplement?

I'm taking regular vitamin d3 capsules. They are safe. Maybe you should switch? I would bring up the warning with your doc just to make sure.

Missbridges I found out my vitamin d was low since my first blood work and now am 27w1d and was also taking over the counter & my latest blood work showed that my levels went up but barely within normal range. I was taking 200 iud per day now the wafers are about 50,000 per week. Addysmama I'm going to call the office today about that.
