The brand of vitamin D supplements we recommend is Biotech Pharmacal. They make vitamin D3 in a variety of doses ranging from 1,000 to 50,000 IU. We have personally tested their product and found their listed ingredients and dosage to be very accurate.
For most healthy adults, 5,000 IU/day is enough to reach the health levels of 40 to 60 ng/ml and maintain them there.
However, since you have a previously diagnosed condition, it is best that you work with your doctor to find a dose that is safe and effective in raising and maintaining your levels in the healthy range.
One of the VDC members once said the below in a blog and you may want to investigate this.

I know that MS can be reversed with high doses of vitamin D3. It is time you start listening to Dr. Cicero Galli Coimbra in Brazil. He has treated people with autoimmune diseases since 2003. He believes it is unethical to do double blind placebo-studies because people can loose their eyesights and be severely disabled. I am one of his patients and I do not understand why the medical community does not listen. Dr. Coimbra deserves a Nobel prize!!!! The documantary has English subtitles http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erAgu1XcY-U. People are getting their lives back! I am so angry because it really is the way to cure MS and other autoimmune diseases – and it is with doses that is individual. He has developed a protocol. You should all be ashamed for not listening to him and all of us who are his patients.
Please make sure you take all of the co-factors listed at “Vitamin D and other vitamins and minerals” especially magnesium! http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/vitamin-d-and-other-vitamins-and-minerals/

Try 7500iu over the next 8 weeks. If your progression does not decrease, then go to 6000iu after that. By all means, if you start feeling worse at any point, then go back to a higher amount of D. I t…

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…

With a level of 31 and those symptoms, I have to assume, at the moment, that your level is being measured as nmol/l and not ng/ml. Country in which you live would also tell me how it was measured. It…
