    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)

    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.
