ERGOCALCIFEROL: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Vitamin D Deficiency: “At age 26, healthy and fit, I suffered through a hemi migraine that resulted in the appearance of a stroke. Some symptoms lasted years. I did not have a stroke, just a major migraine that caused all the textbook symptoms. Fast forward, age 32, had another hemi migraine. After many tests and blood work, I only had 4 abnormals: Copper, Vitamin D, beginning of harden veins in cebral, and an ANA positive. How can a healthy person who always had low BP, cholesterol, and none of the underlying factors get hardening of arteries?! The neurologist set me up with D2, 50,000/wk and D3,10,000/d. No adverse side effects, I don’t have as much, foggy brain, depleted energy, nor the severe sensitivity to fluorescent lights. I always believed if I ate the right foods, taking supplements were not necessary. It wasn’t 24hrs after taking it, that I’ve seen a difference, more like a gradual incline. I respect my neurologist addressing the reason for these migraines not giving me something to mask it.”

Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) for Vitamin D Deficiency: “Doctor prescribed to take one pill 10,000 units once a week. I took one pill and was highly allergic to it, I almost died because the doctors didn’t know how to treat me. My body temperature was through the roof, hives, swollen muscles, lungs failed, all from one pill. I saw three different doctors. First doctor gave me a shot. The steroid shot did nothing for me, too low of dosage. Second doctor prescribed prednisone but didn’t put me on it long enough. I was having allergic reaction for a whole month. After two weeks, I finally saw a specialist who was able to treat it but the heavy medication I was on caused me to have liver damage and other problems.”

For Vitamin D Deficiency: “Was diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency and osteoporosis. Took this medication for 13 weeks now, have not noticed any side effects or benefits. Only coincidental effect I’ve noticed, is that I had to lower my seizure medicine as was experiencing moods and mild depression. Will have follow-up blood test soon and will come back and post results. Hope this helps for anyone afraid of taking this medication as I was, due to posted or possible side effects. I have not noticed any negative effects to date.”

For Vitamin D Deficiency: “I have D deficiency. My doctor proscribed VIT D 50,000 IU D2 (ERGO) CAPS for me. I took one capsule yesterday afternoon after I got my prescription. I have been having terrible headache for over a day now. I just realized my headache is caused by the D2 capsule I took. It can be toxic for certain people!!”

For Vitamin D Deficiency: “I have seen a lot of bad reviews for this pill.. And I’ve only just started taking it.. Taking my first one last night.. But so far, I have zero aches and pains in my joints and bones. It had gotten so bad that I couldn’t sleep at night or sit or lie down without being in severe pain. I don’t feel a ton of energy as some people have stated but it’s only been one day.. I haven’t had any side effects and I overall feel much better. I’m looking forward to the next six weeks to finally feel normal again. :)”

For Vitamin D Deficiency: “This D2 saved my life; I was having so many problems with my digestive issues, acids, bloating, constipation, IBS, nausea and pass-out feelings, fatigue-anemia symptoms, etc.. and now everything is gone. At first I was worried about 50,000iu pill for being too strong, but please trust me, the first 24hrs of the very first pill was the best day of my life in 4 years; it was a good decision to take this pill and I recommend everyone to go for it. I am not an expert, but definitely there is a very good reason why our doctors prescribing D2 instead of over the counter D3 supplements, and I am enjoying it and thanking my doctor in my prayer every night.”
