Decreasing Vitamin D While Taking Fosamax D
My physician prescribed Fosamax Plus D. Is there a multi-vitamin without vitamin D available which I can take to avoid ingesting too much supplemental Vitamin D?
If you are over 50, it is not necessary to find a multivitamin without D. Getting 800 IU per day of vitamin D is acceptable. For older women 1,000 IU is sometimes recommended.
