Hello there. The VIT d3 from tablet is just 60000IU which fills up the stores very slowly. I would suggest getting injections of VIT D3 6lakh IU per week for 5 weeks then one injection per month for 3 months for replenishment of the stores. Also you need to sit in the sun for atleast 20-30 mins a day everyday so that VIT D3 can be naturally synthesised in your body. Naturally synthesised VIT D3 is more potent and available than the one given as supplement. Consult a physician in person for further help. Regards
