Vitamin D and IBS-C conflict

My doctor wants me to up my Vitamin D (with calcium) because of osteoporosis (had chemo years ago). However, taking the higher dose of over 1000 mgs/day seems to make me constipated. And that is while taking citracal AND Linzess. Any thoughts?

    Hi kaylaartist – thanks so much for submitting your question! I’m sorry to hear that your constipation is getting worse! Unfortunately, we are unable to provide any medical advice (for your safety). If you haven’t already, it would be a good idea to bring this issue up to your doctor! I do want to share an article about one of our contributor’s experiences with vitamin D: https://irritablebowelsyndrome.net/living/vitamin-d/.
