    Hi, I recently went to the doctor, had to have a blood test done, because of fatigue. I found out my vitamin D was low, so the doctor gave me a prescription for Vitamin D 5000 IU. Does anyone else take this vitamin? It is only for a month, I have to take this amount.

    I also have a hemmorhoid, which is being stubborn! Does anyone have secret remedies for this problem? I can't do the Preparation H, it burns!

    I did receive a script for 5000 IU, I had it filled, insurance would not cover it. But, my vitamin D has been very low for awhile. I have Fibro. so I need to keep up on it. I can't tolerate to much sun, I have light skin. Thanks for the input, on both subjects.

    I use aloe vera ointment from CVS. It helps.

    Can you try aloe vera gel or Vit e or any oil first to coat the inside then try Prep H?

    I haven't had these in ages but I recently got a reactivation of thick blood (due to a plane trip) and was having some cardio problems. Lo and behold, they came back.

    Well, I had to start taking butchers broom to thin my blood and it sure took care of the other problem.

    I am not 100% sure if they are related but it sure has been a coincidence. I bought my butchers broom online for very little dough - it also helps with the short of breath feeling. Again, I am not sure they are connected but it may be worth $3 for a bottle of butchers broom.

    Definitely stay regular as suggested - no straining.

    Good luck,

    I take on 10,000 iu, 0.25mg capsule once a week. My vitamin D levels are probably high because I've been going to the pool everyday for the last week. Going to the beach tomorrow.

    The dosage I posted is what is on my prescription. I don't know how much vitamin d I'm getting from being in the sun. Probably not that much since I use sunscreen. Hope this makes some sense I've been in a fog for the last three days and a lot of pain until I took some advil. Advil is gone and now I can't sleep.
