Should I let my doctor know I am taking vitamin D?

Yes, your doctor should be informed if you are taking vitamin D, since it can conflict with certain medications. In addition, you do not want to take more than is recommended since vitamin D is stored in the body. If you take too much over an extended period of time, it may result in poisoning, or even death.
