  • Vitamin D problems

    I had tried Vitamin D supplements a few years ago, and it caused nightmares.

    Tried it again this week, and I can't sleep worth diddly.

    Anyone else having this issue with Vitamin D?

    No but it sounds pretty cool to have nightmares on demand, just from vitamin d. It's a horror movie in your head.

    I say you keep going through it and see what happens after a while.

      One of the B vitamins can increase vivid dreams. You're not supplementing with a B complex by any chance?

        Do you know what your VitD levels are like (had bloodwork done recently)? Also, what supplements were you taking specifically? What's in the ingredient list?

          I take my D in the morning, no issues.

          I have trouble sleeping if I take it too close to bed--other folks have reported the same thing.

            I've been taking it first thing in the morning. Yes, I had tried a new super multiple this week, too. May stop them both, wait a couple of weeks, and just try one or the other.

            My annual physical is due in late November. I'll get all the blood work done then. Doc had recommended D last year.

              I started taking Vitamin D this past winter but had to stop because it was causing heart palpitations.

                Have you tried taking a calcium supplement at night- it is suppose to help the good night's rest factor ( or so I have read/ heard)

                  Oh! Also I used to have bouts of insomnia-my doctor suggested calcium

                    I take 50,000 IUs of prescription Vitamin D twice a week as my level is very low. I haven't had any nightmares but I have had some weird dreams. I take mine in the morning on Tuesdays and Fridays.

                      I supplemented yesterday with 8,000IUs and last night I had nightmares about PUFA oils. (I consider them nightmares, but by other peoples' standards they probably aren't. I have a low tolerance.) Interesting. I will have to see if these dreams continue.

                      When I take niacin (not flush-free) I always have super-vivid interesting dreams.

                        I have been taking high quality fermented cod liver oil (and the non-fermented kind when low on cash) and have never had any issues. Infact, quite the opposite. My skin cleared up (though still not perfect at the time because I was still eating wheat and sugars), and it stopped being dry. Plus, as someone with a history of depression, it helped improve my mood throughout the winter season.

                        I've tried the artificial stuff and it has never done me any good. Definitely a large difference in how the body absorbs each kind.
