    I HAVE FALLEN WHEN DR PRESCRIBED A 2400 MG PER DAY. MY LEGS TURNED TO JELLO AND WAFFLED AND DOWN I WENT. I LOWERED DOSAGE BUT THE WAFFLING AND INVOLUNTARY MOVEMENTMENT OF BOTH LEGS AND HANDS/ARMS TO THE POINT OF DROPPING OR THROWING THINGS UNCONTROLLABLY. I DON’T KNOW IF THIS IS PERMANENT AND I’M GOING TO ASK A LAWYER. ITS SCARY NOT BEING ABLE WALK OR CONTROL YOURSELF.

      my wife experienced your symptoms.after we (gradually) weened her off her motor functions resumed normal action. however as you were greatly overprescribed (more than 6 times the recommended maximum dose for humans) you may wish to seek a different doctor and bolster your vit d. get blood work and look for signs of cll (chronic lymphatic leukemia) before its too late to look back
