Starting vitamin d3

I tried to take vit d3 in a liquid form (dropper) 1,000 mg a day due to d3 deficiency two different times.  Both trial periods, I felt weak, dizzy with heart palpatations.  Have u ever heard of this reaction to d3?  Thanks, evieanne

Are you taking magnesium?
Magnesium can help.

If not you can try smaller dose and increasing as your body is adapting.

Not all the people react same so maybe you need smaller dose increasing in time.

I felt that way for a loooong time. Right now I'm taking about 6000iu a day (also D3 drops) if you go back in time in this community, there is a crazy array of vitamin d defficiency symptoms. Weakness, dizziness and heart palpitations are all a part of it. I've had all three for months! I agree with sunnylau. Take magnesium (and calcium) along with the D3. It will help your body absorb it, and it will improve in time.
