Vitamin D3. How much should I take?

I often suffer with very low mood thanks to fluctuating hormones (I'm perimenopausal). When I am feeling really low I feel like I have to be in very strong day light, or if indoors I feel much better having lots of artificial light around me.

This need to be exposed to lots of light is really strong. I'm wondering if my body is trying to tell me I am Vit D3 deficient?

I would like to take a high dose vit D3 but not sure how much I should take?

Hi, i would suggest you to see your GP. I had my results last week and they put me on a dose of 50,000 mg and the doctor said the dose depends on how low you are. Its a simple blood test and report was back in 2 days. Hope this helps and good luck x
