Hi Anonymous

The dose you need depends on your blood work that shows the deficiency. Whatever doctor ordered the blood test is the one who should be prescribing the D3. I guess I don't quite understand why you can't just call the doc and get the prescription? Or are you saying you haven't seen a doctor? In that case I'm not sure how you know you have a deficiency.

I guess I'm a little confused by your question. Can you clarify?
