When you get a chance you should read “About Vitamin D” at the top of this page. You should also pay close attention to the section on “Other Vitamins and Minerals” which is very important!
Your right you should take D3 and not prescription D2. The 50,000iu once a week is not too much but here at the VDC we try and promote daily intake. That would mean the equivalent of taking about 7000iu a day for as long as the doctor says you should take the 50,000iu. After that you may be able to maintain with 5000iu a day if you are average height and weight. The proven safe upper limit is10,000iu or a blood level of 150ng/ml. (Humans in a very short period of time can make 15,000-25,000 iu when sunlight strikes their skin.
Here at the VDC we promote a lower level of 50ng/ml. Too many bad things start to happen at levels around 30ng/ml.
We do also try and promote getting “sunlight” which has effects other than just making Vitamin D.
I do not know where you live. This comes into play because the further away you are from the equator the harder it is to make Vitamin D on your own. So for example where I live, Virginia in the USA does not allow for very much Vitamin D production from about October – March.

Hope I answered all your questions!
So 50K per month equals about 1666iu a day. It takes a person weighing 150lbs, 5000iu a day to maintain a level of 50ng/ml and this 5000iu does not help if you are already having health issues. You n…

If its not too much to ask, what are your study degrees, why are you doing this and where are you from?

We at the VDC promote taking a minimum of 5000 iu a day. That will get most people to a blood level of 50 ng/ml. But you will not know if that is the case unless you test your levels. So no 2000 iu i…

I do not know if you will come back to read this. If you figure this all out at some point, I would appreciate if you came back and told me what happened. For example if you use a lower amount of Vit…
