    Can i take 4000 IU of Vitamin D along with a multi Vit that has 5 UG in?

    Hi, i currently take a multivitamin that has 5 UG of vitamin D in, i wanted to start taking more vitamin D and i read that the upper amound is 4000 IU, i wanted to carry on taking my multi though so wondered if it would be ok to take both still as that would only just be a tiny bit above the upper amount of 4000 wouldn't it?

    I take total between 3500 - 5000 IU.
    Are you very low in Vit D?

    No not really, I do get the odd chest infection though and have one currently that i have had for about 7 weeks, a health professional mentioned that a high dose of vitamin D is known to help respiratory infections, i just read that 4000 was the higher dose but i then realised there was a bit in my multi vit, but i guessed it was that low compared to the 4000 that it hopefully wouldn't make much difference as i'd like to take both.

    Maybe i should have gone for the 2000IU vitamin D, i have the tub already and opened it now though, i could always get a 2000 next time, i assume that would still be classed as a higher dose, especially compared to the normal 5UG that my multivit has.
