Re: 2000 iu of vitamin e?

Right now I am taking 1000 IU. However I am taking this is a single softgel which I bought without a prescription at a local drug store, so I presume that if they sell this amount, then it is safe. That's why I'm asking if taking a higher dosage is safe.
How long do you think long-term use is?
