I posted a while back about having been put on alfacalcidol 1mcg for vit d deficiency and some very knowledgeable people pointed out that this drug was intended fir people with renal impairment . My levels never rise on it and I subsequently found out they never would so I asked the Doc about coming off it . I tried cold turkey and the headaches and malaise were too much so the Doc reluctantly gave me .50mcg to wean however this is half what I was taking and the headaches and malaise have kicked in again . I am wondering what this drug is doing to me . Has anyone any tips on how I can get off it without all these symptoms , the Doc said she did not know anything about this drug and that she would never have used it for vit d def . I am wondering if it is doing something to my calcium as I am reducing it and if I need to add calcium . I would be so grateful if a bit of wisdom . Thanks
