Am I getting the right treatment Severely Deficient

Hello All,

I am new to this group and was recently diagnosed with Vit. D deficiency, level is at 3.
My Dr. said to take OTC Vit. D, I don't even remember how much he said to take.
My question is, are there other ways of getting Vit D? I feel so horrible all of the time, I am taking the pills, but it is hard for me to do. I am a single mother of 6, I still have 2 living at home (teenagers EEEKKK!!!) and have to work 2 jobs to support us as I get no help from ex husband.

If it is going to take months for my level to rise and for me to feel any better, I think I would rather give up. If there are other types of getting Vit like IM shots or IV, how can I go about getting access to those treatments?

Thank you so much for your time, & have a great day.

It can take months abd up to a year to fully recover from a bout of vitamin d deficiency syndrome ( my own name for it).
With your levels so low you should be on prescription strength D3. There are shots available but they usually only give those to children. Speak to your doctor. The doses your taking are not adequate for your levels! Get well soon!
