I'm a 16 year old male and recently got diagnosed with a vitamin d deficiency (9.8ng/ml). I have been prescribed high dose 10,000IU D3 capsules for 8 weeks before having my levels checked again. Is it important to take magnesium when taking 10,000 IU of daily? If so how much should I take. Also is there any other important vitamins (such as k2) I've heard thrown around that I need to stop my high dose d3 giving me side effects? Cheers
