Thank you for your question, yes you have taken higher doses of vitamin D, your daily requirement is 600 IU per day and you have taken a lot higher than this. So at this point if you do not have any symptoms of headache, vertigo, tremors, cramps, then you should stop this treatment. IF you have any of such symptoms then it is advised to go see your doctor as he will go for blood levels of vitamin D to check whether you have high levels of vitamin D in blood or not. Thank you.
