Hello.....my son climbed on top of a chair, then on to a desk, and then onto a filing cabinet to reach a bottle of vitamin d. He ate about 60 pills, around 300 micrograms. This was when he was three years old. I contacted the night-service hospital here in Holland and they said that there was no cause for concern. My son, who is now seven, has some digestion problems, namely a tendancy toward constipation which causes him to really hate going to the bathroom (because it hurts) in spite of the fact that we give him a light lactose-based softener for children every day and plenty of fruits and veggies. Does anyone know if the vitamin d overdose could have anything to do with this, or if it was in fact as innocent as I was told? Thank you -Dorothy.
