I recently experienced inexplicable symptoms of depression that haven't afflicted for me for decades. I credit this to my running out of my Vitamin D supplement at 5000 IUs per day. Resuming my supplementation ended this episode. I had forgotten what this can feel like, and it was mildly disturbing to say the least. Other than this, I take no medication, and supplement with 2g Vitamin C, a multivitamin, and a tablespoon of fish oil daily. This episode has me firmly convinced that sudden Vitamin D withdrawal can be dangerous.
It also occurs to me that I had crazy cravings for cheese these past few weeks, a food I don't typically eat as I'm lactose intolerant.

Hi chase I was taking vitamin d everyday 5000iu when my supply ran out I stopped taking it, after about 2 or 3 weeks of stopping cold turkey I began to experience I what I believe to be withdrawal symptoms that were loss of energy, depression symptoms my mind wouldn???t rest very uncomfortable, the same thoughts going around and around in my head I couldn???t concentrate and had no interest in doing the things that I normally enjoyed I was also kind of spaced out daydream a lot and much more. This all happened around to months ago now and it???s still pretty uncomfortable, what did you do to fix your symptoms did you start taking vitamin d again?? I haven???t because I just felt if it did this to me then I probably shouldn???t take it. But im really fed up of felling like this so im willing to try anything now. What did you do?? What is your story are feeling ok now?? If possible could we maybe email on this issue as you are the only person i could find online who has had somewhat of a similar experience to myself after stopping vitamin d Cheers

This is reverse pregnenlone steal syndrome. I have treated it with a higher carb paleo diet more sexual activity and more aerobic exercising and limitation of green leafy veggies for 3 to 6 months. It works but requires a lot of mental work

Take 100 mcg of selenium and all your withdrawal symptoms will go away. Vitamin D is an antiinflamatory, and selenium is too,, therefore you are subtituting one for the other one while you get detox. I have gon 6 months since I have stopped vitamin D the first 4 were very hard until my endocrinologist suggeted selenium , I am like new.
