Re: Vitamin D3
Jun 11, 2008
Nenu and April. I was at my Neuro's yesterday and spoke to him about D3..he says FDA recommends 1000 ius for proper D3 consumption- dont know if that is the latest update or what, but I also read the same number in this months' health magazine..

Nenu, Garbapentin makes you more prone to sunburn....my doc, when he put me on it, told me the same thing. Much like some antibiotics, the drug can affect how your skin reacts to the sun and it can cause you to burn quicker. I believe that Amoxycillin and the cycline drugs (tetracycline, minocycline) have the same warnings....keep in mind most people who are prescribed Neurontin or antibiotics are NOT prescribed it with MS...Gabepentin (Neurontin and also Lyrica) are all developed as general use nerve pain drugs- but are not specific in anyway to MS...also, sunlight and heat are NOT recommended for MS- however lack of vitamin D is a theory on who developes it....the further from the equator you grow up, epidemiologically, the higher the risk that you will develope MS...but thats also a theory and really isnt proven for sure.

Heya Nikki :angel:

Yup yup! I agree. My neuro also said 1000IU D3 supplements is the sweet spot, so I haven't looked back :)

As far as being more prone to sunburn, eek. Good thing I wear a long sleeve shirt when I go out. I burn very easily as it is :)
